I’ve been dealing with Gastrointestinal problems for 13 years – officially diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 4 years ago! However – I am COMPLETELY different than 99% of people. I get severely constipated and toxic.
My Colitis Story:
It’s so hard researching a lot of this due to the simple fact of – everywhere you look, main symptom is diarrhea. Hardly EVER do I see someone with crohns or UC that deals with constipation. I don’t really have alternating bouts. It’s predominately constipation. I’ve been med free since the get go although my life is still a living hell. I’m ALWAYS sick. Not sometimes, always. There is no such thing as a flare with me. It’s 365 / 24 / 7. Many trips to the ER, admitted to the hospital, 3 colonsopies, etc. They say severe UC, Colitis with deep linear ulcerations in distal rectum. Proctitis, etc. My problems have escalated a ton. Now I am getting HORRIBLE jolting pains all through my body, I have a 12 MM kidney stone. And to top it of, my anxiety is at an all time high. I feel many times like I am going to pass out – no lie. It’s awful. I hate leaving home. When I do go to the bathroom, every few days, it’s hard huge balls that are caked in blood and mucus. Desperately looking for help…….
