I have had UC for 5 years now. I have dealt with 3 flares previously and used Uceris and was in remission since 2016 until October 2019. Last October I started a flare in which I was constantly throwing up especially during a BM. This went on for almost 20 days and I took emetrol which eventually got rid of the vomitting but continued the flare. I was too afraid to take Uceris so I decided to wait as I have been already diagnosed with Osteoporsis. In the meanwhile, I got mouth ulcers which were exteremely bad to the point I couldnt talk. I then got OTC cream and got rid of those. I then started burping frequently and extremely loud which caused vomitting. I figure it might be acid reflux. I started taking Nexium 20mg twice a day and it helped within a month my GERD symptoms were gone. Eventually I started trying to wean off it. about two weeks ago, I finally decided to take Uceris as my flare up wasnt getting any better. I have no started vomitting again during BM and even when im just sitting around with loud belching. I am taking emetrol and nexium again but I am not sure what is causing all the vomitting and belching. The uceris is also not given me much control over my UC only 15% so far. Please advice!
