I was just diagnosed with UC after years of my family Dr. telling me I had internal hemorrhoids.
My Colitis Story Right Now:
Hi, new to the here from PA. I am 31 male and have lower left ulcerative colitis. My GI put me on mesalamine enema’s. They seemed to be working for the first week, no blood. And then I am not sure what happened, but I started to flare up again.. Could stress cause this? I was in the process of buying a new car when I flared, and it seemed to stress me out! I called my GI and she wants me to take the enemas twice daily now. Today I have stomach cramps terrible, not sure what this is from, I just want to feel better, any insight would be grateful.
Currently I’m Taking: Mesalamine enemas- twice daily
