  confused K..I'm having a little bit of trouble with the meds my primary dr prescribed for me while waiting to get into GI (which we hope in w/in 3 wks). She prescribed Entocort - 3 pills day x 8 wks. My UC is in the ascending colon - so taking orally would be the best way they think. They also feel I could have Crohn's. PROBLEM - I cannot swallow pills...will not swallow- because I choke. I have major anxiety and besides the fact of taking pills - I'm scared that I will react panicky to the steroids.  I'm on....week 6 of my flare. Today I actually feel GREAT. I've went twice I think, there still is mucous - not much blood (but I have my monthly - so hard to tell TMI - sorry).  Anyway - I'm wondering if INSTEAD of trying Entocort right now & until I can get in to see a GI for a life-treatment plan...are there natural methods I could try? I  really do try to stay healthy, and would prefer health - vs. steroids and other Rx treatment. skull   Please help!!!  Thanks!
 
**I was originally diagnosed w/UC 1999 (treated w/Rowasa - was pregnant & symptoms went away after delivery. Never got Colonoscopy as I was supposed to). Treated past 10 yrs w/diet & was manageable until recent flare-up w/blood-mucous non-stop
