     Since beginning this flare about ten days ago my 6MP was increased to 75 mgm.  Up until the wee hours of this morning I have tolerated it ok.  However, about 3am I woke up to burning sensations in the upper part of my body, like it was on fire.  Wondering if this is from the increased 6MP, or the combination of that and all the other meds.  Anyone else ever have this reaction?

When I first started 6mp, I had such a weird pain. It ran across my shoulders and down my back, sort of a burning type pain. But when I got used to the 6mp the burning subsided. However, I called my GI to see if this was normal and he told me that if it continued to let him know. But of course it didn't so I forgot about it until now.
