Hi there! I don't mean to brag but its been years since I have been in a serious flare. I feel like I'm in a flare now.. I had a great summer.. and probably played a little too hard lol Lots of camping, 4 wheeling and some drinks. Now I think it's caught up to me.
midway thru the summer I was feeling like my Asacol wasn't doing the trick anymore so my Dr switched me to Salofalk. I don't hear or see of this much...
Is Salofalk popular for UC?
Since then I was up and down but now I am REALLY feeling down. I have rarely had D.. always been constipation for me.. now I am starting to get soft movements, about
twice a day.. but the pain is really getting me. Lots of right sided and front abdominal pains, my lower back is killing me and sometimes its hard to walk. Which is tough since I am a letter carrier !!
My main question today is..
I have lots of neck and upper shoulder pain. Is this UC related? Also, the last few weeks I have weakness in my legs and lots of muscle aches and its like I am just "body tired." Is this UC realted as well?
I am going to get ahold of my family Dr today and see if he can squeeze me in this week. Maybe get a referral again to a GI Dr.. I stopped seeing my GI years ago cuz I was symptom free.
Any info / reassurance would be wonderful.
Diagnosed in 2004 with Ulcerative Pancolitis. Was on Asacol for years and only recently changed over to Salofalk 500MG
