I have been flaring for about 3 months now. Mostly bad abdominal cramping until about a month ago when I had a colonoscopy. Everything seemed to get a bit worse after. After the scope I was put on Canasa and Lialda. My rectal symptoms have actually been really minimal. I am very pleased with the Canasa! However, my abdominal cramping is still bad. Three days ago I increased my Lialda intake from 2 pills to 4 pills daily.
Right now, I have no bleeding but I am going to the bathroom a lot. Nothing that wakes me up in the middle of the night. My concern is that in the past day or two my stools have become very skinny. Is this a sign that the flare could be getting worse? I'm thinking this is caused by inflammation.....
I guess I should add this is my first medicated flare and I have no idea what to expect.
