yeah...that is what i was just thinking about
. Id hate to start tapering on sunday only to have found out it is still there and comes back worse than ever..........thus wasting all that time on the pred and having all the side effects for all that time for no reason. I will stay on the 40mg until monday when i can communicate to the doctor to see what they think.
Over all i think it is getting better but i cant tell. I figure if it is still gassy and blood off and on it surely isnt gone.
It sure isnt like a cold or a headache where you take a pill and you get better. IT baffles me that it can take weeks for the drug to start kick in...but i guess it makes a bit of sense.
I was looking over my online chart and it says my doctor and i discussed diet. I assume that means the doctor and i discussed how i should be eating during the flare up. That never happened so i dont know why it says it did. I have been just eating normally....but much lighter. I had a pile of pizza last night that was likely to blame for heartburn from hell while on the pred. I tell you what........i definitely got the ravenous hunger last night from the pred. I could NOT stop stuffing my face.
What kind of diet do you all follow when you are flaring or in general? I have to imagine super light easy to digest meals so your guts heal is best. They say grains can cause inflammation so steering away form breads and grains probably isnt a horrible idea but i am just guessing.
I generally have been drinking water, soups, bone broth, hard cheeses, scrambled eggs, spinach, avacados, salmon, black coffee.....anything i read that doesnt "cause" inflamation.
I have snuck in a few slices of pizza though...and a beer here or there. Thats probably not helping but its no like im drinking a 6 pack and eating a whole pizza
