I saw that everyone has written when they were diagnosed with UC and where...
I was diagnosed with UC in 1999 (10yrs back).. and I am 25 yrs old..

Never had that happen before but I suppose if you were already in a mild flare it could aggravate things to ride on roller coasters.
UC since 2002- remission for 6 years
recent flare 06/09
Currently on Colazal, multivitamin, probiotics, fish oil
just tapered off prednisone

Did you eat any of that "great" amusement park food? If I've got a bit of inflammation in there, that would do it to me.....
Diagnosed UP 1983, Azulphidine
Diagnosed UC 1986 Prednisone almost 2 years
Asacol - 16 pills a day
Metamucil - 2 doses a day
Cortenemas or Rowasa from time to time
VSL#3, Ultimate Flora Critical Care
Canasa as needed

I think a lot of people who don't even have UC, can virtually crap themselves on some rollercoaster rides! smhair

There is a strong mind gut connection so even though the rides are fun, it also causes surges of adrenaline which can cause some grief if you already mildly inflammed.

I'd say you're flaring as well unless you have hemorrhoids.

It's not the food.

What meds are you on physicsisnice?

You can create a signature by going to CONTROL PANEL >> EDIT PROFILE >> SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM >> SAVE.

You need to be on rectal meds as well....please call the doc, make an appointment or request them over the phone.

Of course I always suggest the retention 5ASA enemas....Rowasa if you're in the US...or Salofalk, Pentasa or Asacol if you're not.

You're welcome re the siggie.

Keep us posted as to how you're doing....don't wait regarding your flare, however.

Not wierd at all.

I used to figure skate. The bleeding was always worse afterward. I'm sure it was atttributed to the spinning and jumping. Some skaters can spin so fast that blood will come out of their finger nails.

More blood flow, better blood circulation, more blood coming out the ulcer(s).

Imagine having a bad cut on the top of your finger. Hold your finger up above the heart with the cut facing upward, the blood flow should decrease. Hold your finger below your heart with the cut facing down, the blood flow should increase.
Joy - 47 yrs and counting; Dx Colitis Dec 06 (also had IBS); Currently in remission

Figuring out how to reduce a flare or get into remission is a trial and error experience. Don't expect your GI to have all the answers. He was trained in making diagnoses, prescribing medications, and surgically removing the colon. He was not trained in alternative treatments. That's why they are called alternative treatments.

What works for me: Fecal transplantation, Probiotics, Anti-inflammatory foods, No HFCS, No foods high in fructose, No artificial sweeteners, No pro-inflammatory foods when flaring, Vitamins, Lexapro (for stress).
