It was a nice respite for a week and a half, but as of last weekends episode it is back and even worse. Don't know whether to describe it as cramping,burning, twisting...maybe all.
It is pretty constant but still doesn't affect my sleep.
Any ideas?
Anything I can take to stem the tide?
On the good news front, I do get in to se my GI on Tuesday.

I have way too many moments of ARGH MY STOMACH IS KILLING ME! lol Last night actually. And it's odd that my right side has been hurting lately too....

It's the same though... I don't know which to call it ...cramping, burning, twisting...sometimes I'm like...it feels like my whole insides are twisted. Stabbing pain... its just all of the above.

Latest-Went to ER cuz I couldn't eat for 5 days and was having severe flare up after passing two kidney stones after a week of the flu. (long month)
GI is currently trying to taper me off of pred fairly fast in hopes to keep me on Lialda and at a lower dosage of pred. to try mesalamine enemas again. Hope it works...if it doesn't.. I go on Imuran and am on pred longer. *crosses fingers*
Medications:Prednisone 40mg Again! (groan)Lialda 4 a day Antibiotic-Amoxyclln
I am so sick of this disease!

ZLSJ, do you think it might have be due to the fiber supplements you started taking? 

I started taking the metamucil pills on Tuesday and my stomach was killing me all week...it seems to have subsided today but...

I remember pb4 saying that your body/stomach has to adjust to the fiber intake.

Prednisone / ended 1/09 (started at 30mgs and tapered down)
Daily Green Tea, de-shelled sunflower seeds & spinach and 1 Multi Vitamin a day
Metamucil - 1/2 tablespoon daily

I don't think so, as it started prior to me taking them, though I must say it's gotten worse since I started taking them.

I just want relief from this constant burning,twisting, etc in my stomach area...I don't even know if I'd call it spasming.
