I'm kinda new to this forum, found this site last month, but have been in remission for about a year and a half, thankfully. I was diagnosed with UC since about March 2007. My last Emergency room visit was just over a year ago. Last night I started getting abdominal pain, but it sits in one spot. My doctor prescribed me dicyclomine (bentyl) for the pain to help keep me away from Vicodin. I've tried that, but have needed to take vicodin from when I was very sick with this disease. The funny thing is I see a little difference with taking the vicodin, but not much. Has anyone been in this situation? I've never really had pain settle in 1 spot, but it is in one of the flare spots when I was recovering from my major flare when I was first diagnosed. I'm really not sure what to do. Kinda thinkng about calling the advice line with my doctor, but want to avoid that, but also don't want to miss any work either.
