What do you think caused yours? How old are you? I'm 39, and stress triggered it, I ate unwashed alfalfa sprouts (being in a rush) and got so sick that night. Several months later, I started bleeding. First scope they said nothing is wrong, second scope UC. I do take probiotics, fish oil, and had a comprehensive test done on my DNA and it showed I was predisposed to this. However, I may never had developed it if I wasn't under such stress, that I put on myself worrying. I kick myself now. I'm trying taking the sunflower seeds someone had posted as well as spiniach. It can't hurt, there's both great in minerals.
First scope 7/05 should no UC, but I was bleeding with urgency. Sigmoid showed UC at rectum, 2nd colonoscopy & Endoscopy 7/27/07, Left sided colitis and near cecum (mild)
8/1/08 on sulfasalazine 2 2x's a day, canasa often.
