I wrote an introduction a couple of months ago, and my ulcerative colitis is just feeling worse and worse. The past few weeks have been cruddy. I have never had the blood that most people experience, but I am going to the bathroom 3-5 times a night and at least twice that during the day. I’m a writer and I work from home thankfully, but it’s tough to get out to do things when I’m worrying about my stomach (I’m sure you can all relate!)
I just ordered “Breaking the Vicious Cycle” and I’m hoping that SCD will help me. What I want to ask you all is if you feel pain/discomfort/sudden urgency when you stretch, twist, or make any kind of sudden movement. That’s the point I’m at now– I want to do yoga to help with stress, but stretching causes my stomach to freak out. Anyone else have this happen to them or know why it happens?
I am planning to get a second opinion on my colitis from another doctor. After a year and a half of medications not working and the disease not going into remission, I want to hear what another professional thinks. And in the meantime, I’ll give SCD a try.
