I've just joined today and have found lots of helpful info. However, all medication that I have ever had, has NEVER made one bit of difference.
I was diagnosed with UC in 2005 which they changed to Crohn's but still unsure. My main syptom is constipation although I can go to the toilet 10-20 times for a bm but only pass blood and mucus. It's been 13 days since my last 'proper poo' which actually wasn't very good at all. Each year since diagnosis I have had a flare up that's lasted about
6 months. Up until last year I took all medication given to me including steroids, enema in morn, 9 asacol during day and enema at night, tried other stuff too as none of that worked. In fact, nothing has ever worked so I stopped taking any medication! I felt like I was rattling for no reason! I've had movicol, lactulose, fibregel...nothing works!
I'm obviously uncomfortable and the pain, I know, will get worse. Has anyone ever had similar symptons?
