Tab - I haven't seen my primary yet about it, I'm afraid they'll just say 'hang in there another week or two and see if it clears up on its own' I've considered the antibiotics also, but that's up to my doc to prescribe them. If I have bronchitis for example, then antibiotics wouldn't do much anyways, since they're most often caused by a virus. It would only prevent any secondary infection from settling in.
Meesh - I've been flaring for pretty much 1.5 years straight. It's only a mild flare at the moment, but a flare nonethless. I agree that my body is probably too busy to mess with this cold, or whatever it is. It's just crazy that we should have to deal with these lengthy colds every couple months, on top of our UC. We just never seem to get a break.
Thanks for the input.
