Some may remember that I was having tail bone pain over the last several weeks, well after getting xrays etc I went to see an ostiopath and he prescribed a medrol dose pack of pred...he assured me it was low dose (4mg) @ 654321...well after two days of this stuff my morning urgency is gone, my back doesn't ache and my tailbone is starting to heal! I've noticed I'm also urinating less, which may turn out to explain the extra weight I've lost and/or inability to gain; anyone know why the low dose of pred would help with this too? It appears I had some very minor inflammation that in just 2 short days on the medrolpack I actually feel so much better. I have never taken pred before this and have refused it for my uc as I know what it can do in higher and longer term doses.
I've undergone very intensive testing as of late with the help of my new GI and new general physcian and will report back when we have more conclusive information. There seems to be an unusual twist to my uc and we're on a quest to find out what exactly I may or may not have. Im also very curious what his thoughts pertaining to my interaction with the medrol pack will be...I'm going on Thursday
Thanks and I look forward to your thoughts : )
