Hi everyone.  I have posted a question before and everyone helped so Im looking to you again. I was diagnosed in January 09 with left sided colitis.  I am currently taking one hyomax per day and 6 asacol 400mg along with citrucel 2 pills/day. And as of 2 weeks ago I am taking one capsul of miralax each night.
My problem is that every friday (I have no idea why on a friday) but I get severe abdominal cramping and very loose bm.  I am in the bathroom for about 2 hours on and off before I can lay back down and feel some relief.  I can take immodium which helps but I don't like to take it bc it clogs me up for a few days then.
My dr is baffled by this, as i call him every friday in such pain looking for answers. He has none. He thought me taking the miralax everyday would help regulate things and it has to some degree. I do have bm's 3/week about but they are not very big. 
Since my dr has run out of solutions for me he wants me to have another colonoscopy done to see if there is something more going on.
Has anyone else had this situation? I am thinking of getting a second opion at a larger hospital bc I really dont want another colonoscopy but I do want to just get better.
This pain is so crippling that I cant work Friday mornings until 1130 at least. Its just so annoying. Thanks for any help :)
