What do most people take for stomach cramping and pain during a flare? Do people take painkillers for these or are those considered a no-no during a flare? I had one doc tell me painkillers can make a flare worse, then another tell me they were ok.
Is it normal to have pain one day, then for a few days its gone, then all of a sudden its back? I can deal with the bleeding - life goes on in that respect. But the stomach pains - you can't do anything much less even barely move without doubling over in pain. Makes being at work a bit of a challenge when I don't even want to leave my cube. Also makes staying hydrated difficult when even drinking liquids causes horrible stomach pains to start.
So far I've tried - TUMS, Levsin, Bentyl, Gax-X
Colazal - 3pills 3xday, Mesalamine enema twice daily, 40mg Pred
