Hey everyone!

i recently was started on my first round of 9mg Budesonide. My GI warned me that I wouldn’t see the benefits for probably 4 weeks(currently starting my 3rd). I was undiagnosed for about 11 years going through a number of other diagnosis before someone exactly cared to run the right tests and look at the right things.

I just feel terrible these days on this medicine. Im trying to stay the course and just push through but I wanted to know how other felt on this medicine. I’ve been cramping, nauseous(that’s a normal for me) and just going to the bathroom nonstop in the morning and urgently. I feel puffy which is just not fun or pleasant.

Heres to hopeful remission! Any advice would be nice or shared experiences.
Thanks a bunch.
