I am really beginning to wonder about
the connection of getting sick and flares.
Back in February, I caught a nasty cold. In the middle of the cold, I started seeing blood for the first time in years. Over the past 2 months after prednisone and asacol, the flare has almost completely vanished.
Now here at the end of April, I've caught another cold. And what do ya know, my flare has increased in severity again.
I'm wondering if the activatoin of my immune system from the cold provokes or worsens a flare. Or maybe I'm just crazy.
