heylo...

okay where to start..

blood
diarrhea
cramping
vomiting while on the can due to pain
nausea
feel hot and cold a bit
general unwell feeling
arthritis in knees and ankles (from the UC)
psoraisis
did i mention lots of pain
anemia
fatigue
when im on pred, i just feel really sick with tummy pain (not the same as the UC gut pain)

as for heating pad... well in australia the electric blankets for beds lay on the bed itself underneath you rather than being a blanket over the top of you. so i turn that on and lay on it and it seems to help a lot when i go to bed. even in summer i will turn it on to heat up then turn it off. but the heat definitly helps i think.

I get terrible nausea but I haven't vomited in years. Tums and sleeping are the only thing that help.
Body aches are the next big one for me- it starts in my fingers and travels through my whole body.
Fatigue- terrible bouts of this. I have weekends where I sleep 16-18 hours and I'm still tired. At work I have to close my office door and sleep a lot of the time.
Pancolitis since October 2004
Currently experiencing symptoms- blood and mild pain. Have started ANOTHER round of enemas.
My drugs of choice: Asacol 2-3 times a day (if I remember), Imuran, Canasa suppositories every other day, probiotics, fish oil, Iron, multi-vitamin
My other therapies of choice: Yoga, walking, my animals, and whining.
