I have been reading this forum on and off for a while and I have decided to register now, it is such a relief to know that there are other people who can understand how I feel. No one else gets it, to them it's just colitis.
I have been diagnosed in 2008 with proctitis, and up to last year I had only intermittent, light flares that cleared quickly with only a course of suppositories for a week. I was in remission for a long time and then suddenly I have been flaring continuously for a year now, and the flares are getting worse. I am slowly increasing medication, I have cramps, and constipation.
Last october I was on a high dose of mesalazine, and I took salofalk enemas for the first time, and after a month i developed bald patches on my head, which have been diagnosed as alopecia areata.
Has anyone experienced the same problem?
