Hi...wow, what a butt-head CL is. Can't believe it!! You could make another appointment considering what you went through in Fargo. Did CL know that you had to go to emergency?
It's great there are was no physical cause for the symptoms you were having, but I can totally relate to the anxiety attack and symptoms. Very scary. I had a long stint of them, but never ended up at the hospital. It's worth seeing him again, because it should be addressed through one way or another...
Seems the Asacol is doing its thing....as well as the Cortifoam since you've been using it full dosage.
*Heather* Status..Asacol (3 twice daily); flaring since Dec 22, now tapered to every 3rd nite as of Jan 13
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotics....(Natural Factors Protec, Primadophilus Reuteri Pearls, Natural Factors Ultimate).... @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~Ranitidine (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 !!!
