I'm SO upset ~ just as I was on my road to remission, I have fallen back into sick territory... : (
Achy knees, beyond tired, stomach hurts, going more and more as each day progresses... I am already on the maximum dosage for Asacol.
Question #1 regarding Asacol dosages: Do you find any difference when you take 2, 800mg doses 3X a day, or taking 3, 800mg doses 2X a day?
Question #2 Has anyone tried the following natural approaches with any benefit: oral aloe vera gel, Boswellia, and/or Bromelain?
Questions #3 Has anyone tried acupuncture as an adjacent therapy? Has it shown any good signs of working?
I'm just really in shock that I was getting better and then out of nowhere it's coming back!
