Sorry to hear about
how bad your cramps are. I take 3 tylenol when they are bothering me. I used to love to take Ibuprofen for them, that worked great, but not good for the UC. So glad to hear that you will be seeing a new GI, I hope he is a good fit for you. It is so important to find a GI that we feel is competent to treat this DD. Hope you have better days coming your way.
diagnosed with uc 27 years ago. Enojoyed 20 year remission with just minor blips here and there (approximately 16 of those years without any meds)
In a flare for 2 very long years which Asacol didn't help at all. Finally in remission again since Jan 2008, can't believe it..............
currently on Sulfasalazine 2 tabs 3x day. Folic acid, mesalamine enema 2 x a week. Omega 3, Probiotics, multi vitamin, calcium supplement, Biotin....
