But.....I dont have the REAL symptoms everyone here complains about
... Like I mentioned, I never saw blood, I usually have one BM a day, although its always very soft. Never have any urgency.
Maybe its only the beginning
I also figure maybe I have a very mild case? When reading this forum (and I've been through quite a bit of it) It seems like so many people are flaring/having pretty bad symptoms etc. Then again UC'ers would usually turn to here when trouble hits. There are probably thousands (I HOPE!) of people out there with mild UC that never really come here and doesnt affect them much.
Another point: Any recommendations as to what medicine I should take? I honestly trust veteran members on here more than what my doc. would say.(I'm actually looking for a new one)
After my scope he prescribed 40mg of pred!
I didnt touch it though. I felt my symptoms NO way required such a strong dose/med.
I actually dont want to take any meds. Am I being irresponsible? If i'm in remission state why take anything? I know its been mentioned that I could flare in the future. But that seems to happen anyway?
Should I take request something like asacol, pentasa?
