Hello everyone. I'm in the middle of a bad flare and wondering when it's appropriate to take oneself to hospital. I thought my GI, who I saw recently, might suggest it as I'm in worse shape than I was at initial diagnosis some years ago, when I spent 3 wks in hospital, but he didnt. We're going to switch my drugs in a few days, so there's a plan, and I'm currently on a prednisone taper (no obvious response). My concern though is weight loss (lost three more kilos in the past two days, for 9 kilos since this began, and I'm small to begin with), anemia, potential loss of electrolytes and all that stuff. In other words, I thought I might need a little restorative treatment for my general health. Any guidance here?
