I always seem to be asking for advise regarding whether these are UC symptoms or normal everyday life symptoms. I seem to micromanage my symptoms to the point of over sensitization to any body feeling within my digestive system. I also have anxiety about
UC. And so, saying that I had a question.
I am on
Salofalk enemas every other night. In between nights a salofalk suppository for basically peace of mind to know I’m covered. I’m also on salafalk oral 9 a day which is why I’ve been on my entire uc journey which is 16 years. I’ve been in long remissions during that time. I just added the enemas in December after starting a flare and have tapered to every other night for about
a month. Maybe a little over a month. I’m constantly nervous of inflammation and am getting a scope soon. My last one February 2018 was completely normal.
I am feeling ok usually 1 bm a day but the past couple days I have noticed a bit harder stools not super hard but harder. I am going 1 time in he morning. After going, it feels like my rectum is irritated. I’m wondering if it’s bc the stool was larger and harder than normal? It was former and thicker. Basically normal looking.
Today I have had another Bm (second of the day) in the late afternoon. This one was small pieces that floated. I ate black beans last night.
I also feel some abdominal tenderness.
Please let me know what you think. Inflammation? Normal? I forgot to say I used anusol ointment and when applying could feel irritation and sort of soreness right in the on the
opening of my anus and rectum. Is that internal or inside?
Lastly, started Dexilent which is a PPI for acid 4-5 days ago.
I’m worried but rationally know I cannot have 100% same consistent stools everyday. Not possible.
Sorry this is so long. I’m just nervous.
