Thanks, everyone. I was on Prilosec OTC for a while too but that had no effect after a few weeks so now I am trying Pantroprazol, which is Rx. I don't get any nausea or reflux from this, but I get constant aching pain around my stomach and sometimes a burning pain at the duodenal junction. The pain gets worse for me as I lower my prednisone, and when I take pred in the morning it sometimes causes the pain to drop off (the pred effect on reducing pain was more pronounced at the higher doses of pred), which is confusing because if the pred was causing it, you'd figure it would improve as I taper. I am hoping this isn't a sign of Crohn's in the stomach, but was told it does not at all resemble Crohns.
Pancolitis >20 years, allergic to all 5ASAs
Tried everything under the sun (natural and alternative)
Some partial success with TSO but was too expensive to keep up
Currently Remicade and lots of probiotics, tapering pred again, maybe surgery this year
