Long time since my last post here, as have been in remission for the last 7 years - but was hit by a flare up that I'm struggling to get under control.
I was diagnosed over 20 years ago and have been on Asacolon & 6mp as my maintenance meds in the past. However, due to being in remission for so long, foolishly went off meds with my consultants approval.
This flare up started approx 6 weeks ago - started Asacolon 3* 1800mg daily, on 40mg prednisolone for 2 weeks, with a 5mg taper every 7 days Now down to 30mg for a few days and symptoms near as bad as they were:
urgency few times a night, bleeding and morning clustering.
Any recommendations on next steps, next appointment with the consultant is not for another 2 weeks.
Any advice much appreciated !
