So how many of you get canker sores? I used to get them all the time as a kid. I haven't had them in years but now all of a sudden I have a massive outbreak! 2 weeks ago I had one so bad I went to the dentist, thought it was something with my teeth. Nope, it was a canker sore hidden way down by my tongue and gums. I had another one at the time too behind my lip. Those went away, now I have 2 more (and another feels like it's forming).
I know these can be a side effect of UC. But are they always a sign you are flaring? Or can you just get them anytime? I know my GI always asks me if I've been getting sores in my mouth. I'll admit, my gut has been acting up for the past 2 days. No bleeding (which I never seem to have) but my BMs are more frequent and not as formed. And my gut is so bloated my pants are tight. Also some pressure on my bottom, almost feels like a hemmie but I can't tell, I seem to get those alot though. Feel like I have a slight cold. I've been super wiped out lately.
I have been tapering off the Mesalamine enemas from twice a day to once a day. I had gotten down to doing them nightly, with a 2nd dose during the day only every other day.
Please I hope I'm not flaring back up now!
