oh yes, it depends on what I eat, and if I'm using the enemas or not.
Last night...too much icecream with using the enemas...It was a horrifically hot night with all that gassssss, I had to finally let it all out so that I could get some sleep.
I am flaring mildly and would expect such discomfort...but knowing I couldn't release it freely became more of a mindful experience.
Are you flaring at all gdfairy?
You might consider to take digestive enzymes if specific foods are more gas producing.
*Heather* Status: flaring...Asacol 3 twice daily; Salofalk enemas nightly
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~UC meds: Asacol (3 @ 2x daily); Salofalk enemas nightly for flares & taper to maintenance
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~vitamins/minerals/supplements; Probiotics....(RenewLife Ultimate Flora Critical Care + Primadophilus Reuteri). @ bedtime
~various digestive enzymes as needed
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
