It's too bad you says the enemas dont work for you..... if I feel I'm severe enough that the 5-ASAs don't cut it for me, I go to steroid enemas - less gets into your system than with pred.
If you keep getting worse, it's sure time to take some kind of action - you don't want to let it go too long before addressing the flare!
