Tylenol and a heating pad.

UCers should stay away from any NSAIDs as they can cause GI bleeding. NSAIDs include: naproxen, ibuprofen, aspirin.
Pan-colitis and GERD diagnosed May 2003
Osteopenia diagnosed Feb 2006
Status:  Getting close to remission!?!?!
 
Asacol 12 per day,  Azathioprine 100mg, Aciphex, Forvia, and Pro-Bio
Last dose of pred: May 25

ditto to Dakota, the heating pad really does help. Never helped w/menstrual cramps but for some reason helps w/uc cramps.

Also, definitley stay away from NSAID's, I just got into a flare caused by aspirin (I just forgot!).
