Wow...I would think you DON'T have UC..for sure. Something else is going on. Have you been checked for microscopic colitis?
Remember that celiac is in the small intestine, but people who have it will have symptoms of diarrhea, pain..etc. Are your stools kind of fluffy/frothy?
Did the doc take lots of biopsies?
Are you bleeding?
Prilosec in itself can cause discomfort....as can 5ASA meds.
When do you get the results? Make SURE you get a copy of the results and a copy of your last one and all blood tests.
Have you made any efforts towards a diet change?
Are you consuming any artificial sweeteners?
You've definitely had a pain-full day. Hope the evening will be quiet. You will have discomfort after the scope....maybe bleeding from the biopsies.
I don't know....seems more than just what's visible.
hang tough, however...seems you'll have to fight to not go on prednisone.
*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 !!!
