Hey all - I was fortunate to have a few long periods of remission and I've had a long hiatus from this forum. Unfortunately, I've got some weird symptoms going on and would appreciate your input..
Have been in full remission for 18 months (after dropping Imuran which had been on for years). Out of nowhere a few weeks ago, had blood in stool. No other symptoms; no diarrhea, urgency, joint pain, etc. my last flare started this way, so GI ran labs (normal) and ordered 6 day mini-pred burst. Bleeding stopped but started again as soon done with pred.
I've now been on 20mg pred for just week with a scope scheduled in a few weeks. Starting to see blood again at this dose. Again, no diarrhea, urgency...basically no e of the other symptoms you would expect from a flare. Ive never had hemorrhoids or a fissure...just curious if either of those could cause symptoms like those I'm dealing with. Thoughts?
