I have been using these forums for a while to seek advice but never posted before so here it goes...
I am a 26 yr old female diagnosed with Ulcerative Proctitis in 2010 and have had on/off flares since but generally managed to keep them under control with Mesalasine suppositores and restricted diet.
However, ever since December 2014 I have been in one massive flare with really odd symptoms. It started normally (cramps, urgency, blood and mucus etc) so I started my usual med routine but then I noticed I was going very much the other way (excuse the details) where I would not be able to go for several days and when I did it was very hard, 'rabbit dropping' stools, but still with blood and mucus and abdominal pain.
After several bloods taken and finally a colonoscopy they said I was in fact not having a UP flare... They started me on Movacol laxatives and Dulcolax stool softner to get things going and this seemed to be working, but then started going too well so I reduced the dosage (as they told me too). Since then it has gone back to the other way yet again. I am still bleeding every time I pass (sometimes just blood and nothing else) and have not had a movement without blood since this started in December. The abdominal pain however has been getting worse, and much higher.
I have yet another appt next week but in the meantime I wondered if anyone else had experienced this as I am at an utter loss :(
Why am I still bleeding? Could it be something wrong with my gut higher up then my UP? It is not piles or hems. Also, I get large lumps forming on my tummy when I lay down, like things are getting stuck in there...
Apologies for the rather long first post but if anyone has any advise I would be forever grateful,
