The nurse called back. They are going to call in some Bentyl (sp?). Then she said the doctor wanted to start pred. I immediately said, "Do we have to? What about
steroid enemas? I'd do anything not to do the pred again."
She's going to talk to the doctor and call back. I will not follow the pred path again. I sure hope this doctor will work with that. I would really hate to go through the hassle of finding a new doc, again.
I remember having cold sweats during a white-knuckler before - but not the deep chills after. Yes - layers are good! T-shirt with zip up hoodie is the fashion today. Hoodie goes on, hoodie comes off, hoodie goes on....
I should have listened to intuition and brought the heating pad to work :(
This flare is giving me lots of back pain as well. I saw the chiro yesterday and nothing was out - so we know it's the flare... I took a couple of pamprin and hope that will help for the afternoon.
