So I'm worried I'm starting a flare again having hardly got out of the previous one. I've had a rough journey since being diagnosed with uc in November 18. Got but on a standard pred taper which worked initially but my symptoms returned when I got down to about
15mg. So I got out back up on 40mg and then got stuck unable to get below 30mg without flaring.
In the meantime I tried imuran which made me sick so had to come off it. I then switched onto 6mp which has been OK although I can only take 25mg every other day and with allopurinol due to not metabolising it properly. I'm also on humira which I gave been for nearly 5 months.
Things have steadily improved for me to the point where I've been declared in remission. I've been having 1 bm every day/every other day which is normal and not many symptoms.
However suddenly in the past 3 days I have been having more pain again and my bms have gone looser. I'm worried this is the start of a flare but not sure why it would come on this suddenly when things have been great?
Im not sure what to do. I had a test to check my humira levels when I'd been on it a couple of months and my level cane back as 11. 7 but don't really know what this means. That was the level 3 days after doing the injection not before next one was due.
So I'm feeling pretty down as I can't bear to flare again
