i have been suffering over the past few weeks, i always get the pain of uc and the mucus and urgency (urgency not too bad) but now im getting it all but a million times worse especially with the urgency, at times i have thought i was going to have an accident in the middle of shopping and the pain felt like someone was standing on my chest limiting my breathing. My doc has changed my medication, im now on asacol and predfoam. Does that sound like i was flaring or just that my recent meds wasnt working, i was on pentasa. Still get the urgency but not got the pain at the min.. thank god.

Absolutely you're flaring. It's good you're using meds for both ends.

*Heather* Status..Asacol 6 (3 twice daily); enemas every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 4(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux);  Effexor XR 75mg(depression);  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!
