Is a constant fear of mine.

I've been great lately though... 3 or 4 bms in the morning and then done for the day. The rectal meds have been a huge help!


Then this morning I woke up and haven't been able to get out of the bathroom... till now. I have been in such bad pain that i called in to work because I swear i was near throwing up.. i now have a lovely migraine and i'm shaking. No fever though.

I have been goin tons every time... like filling up the bowl.. no blood and formed though. But the pain is what is killing me.

Time to call your doctor, Kara. A sudden change like that could be simple gastroenteritis, but best not to make that assumption. You're far better off to talk to your doc than to put it off and then have to go to the ER in the middle of the night. The people in the ER don't know you, don't treat IBD regularly and aren't your best source of care.

Hope you're soon feeling better.
