Help.... I'm in what has escalated fast a bad flare, i know it is viscous as I'm waking up through the night (no sleep) I was going well until falling ill with severe sinus infection / polyps that caused me serious issues. I couldn't get in to see my usual doc who understands my illness and the doc i saw was arrogant, i told her all the antibiotics i can't tolerate and to put me on bactrim as i tolerate this and have used for sinus previous. She refused and had take doxyxycyline? I took the course it did nothing but send me into the worst flare ever! Now I'm on bactrim and i.fection clearing but flaring like crazy! I started 30mg pred that wasn't working so upped 35mg and 3 days in still no relief? 30mg always clears me up in the past. I have app with new gi in 2 days but I'm a bit worried. If i have more time off work my job will not be there for me. Shud i start colifoam also? I have inflammation in proctiis area also from last scope.
