Im new to the Forum and i was hoping i could get some advice and help from fellow UC sufferers. Im 21 and was diagnosed with UC when i was 15. I have had the usual ups and downs and typical flair ups.
At the moment im going through a very bad flair up, probably the worst i have had and im not sure what to do. My medication i was on was mercaptopurine, which i found was not helping so once i ran out i stopped taking them which probably was not a good idea. I had a 4 weeks dose of Salofalk enemas which did not help either. So i left it and was not on any medication.
At the moment i have put myself back on the prednisone to try and help, which is not having a great effect either. My specialist i normally see is away and i not available till january, i do not have a GP as i normally just see the specialist. I dont want to just go to any old GP and get told something i already know but i dont know what else to do.
This is by far the worst flare up i have had and im starting to get really worried as its not getting any better.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated
