Hi. I'm new to this forum. I have been flaring (badly) since october 2007 and after being on prednisone (40mg) for three weeks had begun to feel better. But last weekend, I either had food poisoning or a stomach bug and had to go to the hospital. They gave me fluids and a blood transfusion for the anemia (related to the colitis). After three days I started to eat solid food and felt a bit better. I kept getting wicked cramps and diarrhea at night and in the mornings but the days were better. For the past two nights, however, the cramps and naseua is unbearable. Last night I was up all night and vomited. I don't know what is going on! Is there some weird interaction between the stomach flu and ulcerative colitis so that I just can't get better? It's been over 8 days and I still can't shake the vomiting and cramping. Any thoughts? Suggestions? Thank you!
