Hi. I usually just read all the posts and find them all very good. Must say I have learned alot about UC since finding this forum...So thanx to all of you!!!!
Anyway, I was diagnosed in May 2007 after suffering for about 3 weeks. Compared to some of you I haven't had it that bad. I have been on Asacol - (stopped working after a couple of weeks), Pentasa (stopped working as well), Imuran (made me very ill), and now Remicade. Of course during the last 2 years I have been on and off of Prednisone regulary as well.
I have had 7 Remicade infusions and everything seems to be going well so far....until now!!! I had my last infusion the first week of January and since then I have felt nauseous, headache every day, constant pain in my stomach and extremely tired. I have always been tired but since january I feel exhausted.
Bowel movements are still the same (2-3 per day very loose), some urgency in the morning. Yesterday there were small traces of blood but nothing major. I feel nauseous when I haven't eaten and when I have eaten.
Just curious if this seems familiar to anyone???????
