Hi Everyone. Thanks for responding.
I take randitine (sp?) and fanotidine. I take them before and after meals as needed. I have seen prilosec, of course, but have always been turned off by the price. Of course now that I have recommendations I think I should give them a try.
I actuallly have a variety of stomach pain. I have sharp pains and also burning pain in midsection where I think my stomach (the organ) is and also stabbing pains to the right of stomach. I don't think I have heartburn. I don't have it everyday either, but I have it for four or five days and then maybe a week goes by with only a little upset and then it comes back again. Sorry, probably tmi.
It is absolutely mind boggling to discover that rectal inflamation can cause stomach pain. I just can't picture it. Perhaps that is what my gi is referring to when he blames my pain on UC. I wonder how many others realize this.
I am taking rowasa every few days for now. I am supposed to back off on them to see if I have reduction in diarrhea. i do have a rx for levsin for spasms which I have never filled due to side effect of tiredness and dried mouth which sounds horrible to me. Funny, I never thought my stomach could spasm.
UC diagnosed 10/05, first symptoms 1983
asacol daily and rowasa as needed
