Hi...when I'm starting to flare...the ability to fart is a bit hindered. If it's consistent, then I would almost guarantee you have rectal inflammation happening.
How many times a day are you going?
Have you made any changes to your diet as of late?
Did he give you script
s for any meds....5ASA oral and rectal to be specific??
If it's constant, I say flare. If it's only for a day or two and has improved..it was food.
*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
