Well, I am new to this forum, but definitely not new to the disease. I am currently going through a flare that we caught pretty early so I am hoping it will be gone pretty quickly (these flares always make thing "interesting").
Anyway, I was continuing to have severe stomach cramping right after I eat and right before I have to use the restroom. My Dr. prescribed me to bentyl to help with the cramping and all. My body does not like this medication. I was forced to go to the ER from my husband and family. This was after he saw that my blood pressure was 139/111 and my heart rate was 171. The Dr at the hospital told me that my body was reacting to it this way and to never take again. We got my blood pressure and heart rate down, but I am nervous about it coming back up. He sent me home with a handful of anxiety meds in case my heart rate goes sky high. Has anyone else experienced this? And what are other options to help with pain?
I'm not an anxious person. Like never. I've never had issues with my blood pressure or heart rate before.
