Hi James...thanks for the quick reply. I remember looking it up when you mentioned it to me in chat a few years ago, but couldn't recently remember what it was. I knew it wasn't asthma. But, I thought it was a fibrosis something.
Must put that in my memory bank ;-)
How exactly were you diagnosed...meaning what tests did you have to go through (after reading all the testing, just wondering)?
Happy to hear it's not an issue for you any longer.
I found this info for anyone reading this thread who might be interested..rather than asking.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
