I'm sick with stomach ache and vomiting. I am angry because I hate missing work. I just feel like my body does a poor job of fighting of illness and it is incredibly frustrating.
UC diagnosed January 05
Past Meds: Azasan (Imuran) - piercing chest pains after six days so tried different brand aka Azathioprine - morning nausea /didn't really help after more than 6 months, dicyclomine (still flared), Remicade - 7 treatments (stopping because no dramatic changes), allergy shots (03-07), levbid, prednisone (been off since nov. 08!)
Current meds: Asacol 2 - 3x, Aciphex (acid reflux), canasa and rowasa alternating every other night, konsyl (fiber 3 a day), multivitamin, caltrate 2x a day. probiotic (florasmart), astelin (nasal spray as needed for allergies), fosamax (bone density), Iron

Feel better soon and give your body the rest that it needs. Lots of fluids!
Diagnosed with severe pancolitis in October 2009 - still in active flare
Meds - prednisone dependent (flare returns everytime I taper to 20mg or less)

Asacol (3tabs 3x/day)

Azathioprine (100mg)

Geodon (40mg) - for general nuttiness

Multivitamin/multimineral supplement

Started Specific Carbohydrate diet on Aug. 4, 2009 - stopped September 10th even though it seemed to be working. I just love food too much!

Hopefully it's just something you ingested and you're getting rid of it rather than something physical related to UC or other.

Hope you feel better soon!

I hate vomitting....ugh!
