Hello all, Its been a while since i've posted!
I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same symptoms as me?I've been in remission for a few month and my symptoms have come back with avengence, only this time i am being violently sick, every time i need to go to the loo, i get breathless and feel the urge to puke (sorry about being so graphic). I have no food in my system, and worried to eat in case it make it all worse. Im bleeding quite a bit and the constant vomiting hitting my back hard!
Im so weak and dreading going back on the steriods, i dont know how to manage enemas and work at the same time?!

You need to talk with your GI. Vomiting is a sign of a pretty intense UC flare. Along with your increased bleeding and I presume, weight loss, you don't want to put this off. You can refuse prednisone but do go to the GI.

Just curious if you've ever tried another ASA besides Asacol? Some folks have alot of trouble with it and vomiting is one of the side effects.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999.

I have only been on the asacol and have been on them for abt 6 years now, i think its prob due to the flare more than anything. As im also getting severe pulsing pains in my lower left abdomine. Im due to seemy GI next friday, but i may start on the predfoam now, the blood is scarey me !

I'd either see if you can move your appointment up or at least call and ask to speak with a nurse.

Seeing GI for first post hospitalization consultation Oct 9th - should get full diagnosis then

I second the advice to call your GI ASAP. Whenever I have vomitting with the D, I end up in the hospital if I wait too long. It usually means I am dehydrated and anemic, as well as having very high levels of inflammation. Don't wait for your appointment -- please call.

Hope you start feeling some relief soon!

The first thing to do is get an appointment with your doc.I also have vomiting,there could be many other reasons that aren't serious but get a doc to check you out.
hope you get to feeling better soon

If you can't eat, you should at least drink some nutritious soups and lots of water.
I had my worst UC experience in February this year, throwing up everything I swallowed. I ended up dehydrated and was sent to ER twice in a week. When I was sent home after my second visit to ER I found that my left leg was swollen. I got DVT because of dehydration and immobility (staying in bed for too long) and am still taking Warfarin now.
2 months later, in April, after a colonoscopy I was dx with pan-colitis.

Do call your doctor immediately and seek his/her advice. Good luck to you.
Ulcerative proctitis diagnosed in July 2006. Medications: Salofalk enema nightly.
Remission from Nov 2006 to Oct 2007. Then a bad cold and a bad flare till the present.
Pancolitis diagnosed in April 2008. Current medications: Salofalk enema/suppository, Salofalk tablets 500mg x 3/day, Azathioprine 75 mg. Warfarin for my Deep Vein Thrombosis which resulted from diarrheas and dehydration in Feb 2008.
Supplements: Probiotics, Calcium with Vitamin D, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C, psyllium capsule (Metamucil) and bee propolis.
