Hi everyone, hope u r feeling good. I was diagnosed in Aug. 07 with Ulcerative Colitis. Had been told by family Dr. I had hemroids for about 1 and a half yrs before diagnosis. I do not blame her since it was my fault, I just did not go to Dr as often as I should have. So I have several ulcers, Gerd and constipattion, bad, without Miralax every day. I went to my GI Dr, that I now have for a 3 month check up last week and she cut my meds a great deal, 3 Colazal and Canasa as needed. My question is I have bad lower back pain and she said it has nothing to do with the Colitis. My Family Dr. thought it was, but she has done x-rays and has reassured me I have the spine and back of a 25 year old and that all I have is muscle problems. No Arthritis either. Which she put me on Percocet and Flexeril for. Does anyone else have back pain? Sorry this is so long but this is my first time here and I guess I need to find out as much as I can about this since she said its for life. Good luck Everyone.
