My Colitis Story:
Hi I have had UC now for 4 1/2 years! I still feel I know nothing about it. I got Ulcerative Colitis when I was pregnant with my daughter, in that time I also got pancreatitis and liver issues! I have since had a hysterectomy because ever time I had a period I would flare as well! I would for sure say I do not have it as bad as others that’s for sure! I think mine is stress related! I’m on cymblta witch seems to have calmed my stomach! But I do have times of serve pain witch takes me into the ER. Dr and nurses at this point make me feel like I’m drug secking! They give me daltide witch is a very heavy pain med. I react to that and most of the time makes my pain worse. Does anyone know why? Also can you just have pains with no other symptoms! Again I am always, always tired some weeks are worse! I do have lots of joint and muscle pain! I’m just tired of doctors and nurse not understanding my pain! Just because they see no other signs. I feel bad for my kids because I feel like I am always saying mommy does not feel good her tummy hurts! I get nervousness for long car rides! What will I do if I’m stuck with out a bathroom?
I do take vicodine when I start getting pains witch stops my pain and diarrhea once it starts working. That’s the only thing that stops me from spasms! I am very good about when I take it. My doctor watch me on my intake of it, which I appreciated very much. That’s the last thing I need is to become dependent on it! I feel alone I guess, even though I’m not. I just just don’t understand the pain I get! But don’t necessarily have diarrhea!
Cymbalta because I think mines stress related. Also vicodine only thing that takes spasms away! I HATE steroids every time I take them I get different side affects first was up for days and days. Seconded facial hair! Third broke out all over my body and 4th well I was just plain mean, I could not even stand myself!
