Can I tell you that I also have "the gift" and I will tell you that since this UC has brought such joy to my life the pain I experience when my eye acts up, is the WORST pain ever, I cant even stand it, it happens to me about 4-7 times per year and it is just the worst pain ever, people dont undersrand it, I would "run" to the bathroom 60 times /day if my eye would never get inflammed again!!!! I have about 6 diffent eye drops but none of them take away the pain, so I do what every bad UC'er does I take Advil, yup, I said it!! Its the only thing that relieves the pain, I want to dig my eye out with a melon baller when it acts up, sometimes its the right eye, sometimes its the left, guessing when it happens is half the fun!!! My opthamologist loves me I think I am putting his kids through college. In any event, I talked with both my GI and opthamologist and they both said do what works, so I take the advil as the pred gtts had little to no effect...Hope this helps, and I hope you dont get it again!
