    List of current symptoms, want opinions

    I know I got posts all over the place right now (sorry), i'm just trying to keep everything separated so each things goes in the right categories of the forum. {see my "time for pred again" in the treatment area/"in poor shape" in support forum} I'm really wanting everyone's opinion. As...

    Time for Pred again...

    Now that it's Tuesday officially it means I'll be seeing the family doc tomorrow, where I'll literally beg and plead for Pred if necessary... I hate having to rely on it, but since I still don't have a diagnosis it's really impossible to be given anything else. i used to get relief off of the...

    In poor shape, MAJORLY frustrated

    On mon. I went to the ER after vomiting bile to go along with grey stools and the off and on bloody diarrhea/bloody mucous, dizziness, plus that 'burning' feeling in the tummy. They took basic bloodwork - normal. Took x-rays - liver and gallbladder normal, no kidney stones. That left the ER doc...

    Cyclobenzaprine + Toradol

    I'm curious guys...I've been having a bout of some bloody diarrhea for the last few days and some stomach cramps, and I'm pale as a ghost. Signs of a minor flare for sure. But I also have been taking Cyclobenzaprine for a major back ache for the last 3 days and 3 nights ago I got a shot of...

    Had a CT Enterography!

    FINALLY, after waiting 15.5 months, I got in for a CT Enterography! I think I got pretty lucky, because it wasn't that bad at all. In the health region I had it done it, I had to drink 4 large glasses, in 40 minutes, of water mixed with Sorbitol. It tasted like acidy, weakly sugared water...

    New specialist

    Well I'm super nervous. 3:30 pm today I see a brand new specialist! Not that there is anything wrong with my usual one, but I have been waiting to see this guy for over 2 years now. I've read mixed opinions about him...some say he's been amazing, some say he's been a jerk. I hope I get the...

    Heads up about Pred and hypertension meds...

    Well I am not sure if this is the case for everyone, but I decided to try figure out why my blood pressure has been so high even though I'm on strong dose of hypertension meds (60mg, twice a day). I knew that Prednisone increases hypertension risk, but using a drug interaction website I...

    Pred and coffee...

    Curious question, friends. How many of you can tolerate coffee while being on Prednisone? Any idea why coffee could affect it? This is my 4th time on Pred and twice I had no problem with coffee, and once I did. I wonder what's going to happen this time :p

    Saw the doctor...

    I didn't have the energy to post about this yesterday so I'm posting it now before I go back to sleep a little longer. It was a very successful appointment with my family doctor... 1. I asked if I could be on something stronger than Cipro/Flagyl given my symptoms during this flare, and asked...

    Metoclopramide...

    I'm curious, am I the only one that takes this anti-nausea pill? It really seems to work for me for the most part but it is kind of a pain to be taking an anti-nausea pill 4 times a day. Is there anyone else in Canada on anti-nausea pills that you can take fewer times in a day? I ask for Canada...

    Vomitting...

    Well friends, to just add to my issues in my "OMG!!" thread, I have officially began to vomit immediately after eating. Didn't lose the full meal (stopped myself), but had to get rid of a mouthful and the rest is just sitting like a lump in my throat waiting to come up. I gotta say, this is a...

    Cipro alone?

    cipro alone? My doc at ER gave me Cipro for what will be 6 days (missed a couple doses), but for a bad bladder infection. He gave me nothing for the Flare itself; I usually get the Cipro/Metrodonozole combo or Prednisone). Have any of you ever found relief on Cipro alone? After 2 days I am...

    Omg!!

    WOW I am beyond frustrated and I need to rant!! I went into the ER today at home because I am having a flare of whatever I have. Well, after the doc read all my symptoms (last week was bloody diarrhea, mucus-y diarrhea; today was urgent diarrhea with vomiting and extreme burning sensation) the...

    1 meat, 2 meat, 3 meat, none? 1 veggie, 2 veggie, 3 veggie, none?

    Yep, tried to sound all Dr. Seuss here. ANYWAYS, there is a point to the title... Those who know me know that I've had MAJOR issues with red meat, and that red meat triggers up my flares of IBD (and remember, I have no specific diagnoses of which IBD I have). So i started eating red meat...
