luv2ride, i have the same issue. Asacol cleared up the bleeding, mucus, and D, but I have this persistant ab pain that simply wont go away. I do still get cramping, but only when I eat something I shouldnt. I would describe the pain as a tenderness also. I usually only notice it more when Im eating ANYthing. Im getting annoyed with people who ask me 'Is it when you eat certain things?' No, its when I eat or drink anything. And this morning, I actually woke up with it. Nice. Now its occurring when Im NOT eating. Awesome.
. My bm's are formed, but I go from C to going fairly regularly. So, I was hoping to look into getting on some amitryptaline (whatever its called) bc I was under the impression that it could help with this sort of pain, but now Im a little confused. If you are describing the same pain/tenderness/discomfort Im feeling and you've been on it for sometime, do I want to put myself thru it and it not work??
I wanna cry all over again. I was feeling hopeful after reading your thread (Im sure it was you, Ill check it out in a min) about
the amatrip-ta-stuff. Now Im not sure. Im gonna call my nurse specialist right now.
