I have yet to be fully diagnosed with Colitis, however it's about 95% based on symptoms and blood work. Can anyone suggest how to go about relieving the pain of flair up until a diagnosis and proper medical care is completed, it's killing me!!!

Welcome to the site! Do you have an appt. w/ a GI soon? I know the pain can be rough but remember not to take Ibuprofen.

Welcome to HealingWell, Rosscoe. I'm sorry you needed to come here, but glad you found us. I'll second the suggestion from Tab, no Ibuprofen or Naproxen. Tylenol is safe for us to take. Some people get relief from the pain with a warm heating pad on the abdomen. Also avoid "gassy" foods like bran, vegetables in the cabbage family, beans. Also, fatty and spicy foods may irritate your colon and increase the pain. Keep your food fairly soft and bland for now.

I hope you have an appointment with a GI specialist soon, so you can get a diagnosis and start treatment.

I'm awating a call from GI to schedule the scope. It can't come fast enough.
