Ive been flaring for a few weeks now. The blood and d have improved with increased prednisone. Last time I had a flare in January, the prednisone made me a little nauseous. This time around I get very nauseous, my lower and upper stomach cramp really bad and Im very gassy! The gas smells of something terrible, but relieves the nausea and cramping. Ive had about
6 waves of this feeling today and over 10 yesterday. It wakes me up at night too! Bleh. Ive had UC for several years and this is the first time I've felt like this tapering off the pred. Does this happen to anyone else? I'm interested in anyones experience with over the counter gas medicine. Its not alright to be this gassy and smelly in public!
