Hi folks,
 
Another question, I took my pills last night, later than usually, went to bed this am I woke up with heavyness on my chest, but it felt like acid reflux sitting there and was making me hard to breath. Do you get this? My stool there's no blood, but again urgency. Yesterday I couldn't hold it back and had a accident in my pants. Why do I get this so much? I'm thinking it's a yeast problem.
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.

I took sulfasalazine for 5 years, it did give me stomach problems, like an acidy stomach. Not like you are describing though
