I have suffered from Ulcerative Colitis since 2001 and have been struggling since really.
I have been fortunate that since July 07 I had been fine, but in the last month things have gone
down hill. I work full time and I am having flare ups when I drive to work, traffic is killing me.
I have tried going in early, but that is not helping at the moment.
I had 3 flare ups on the drive to work this morning, and had to turn round and come home.
Unfortunately I had about a 20 second warning of an attack, but when stuck in traffic there was nothing I
could do. Feeling pretty mortified at the moment, and down about it all. I'm in my early 30's and getting
depressed having all the ups and downs. My sick record is not looking too hot either.
I went to the docs last week and my prednisolone is upto 20mg oral and 20mg Predfoam, and the usual 6 asacol tabs a day.
Have another appointment today, but not sure what the doc will be able to do.
Sorry I'm having a moan, but need to give my husband a break!
