Ibd Flareup, First In 3 Months

Recommended Posts

I think my IBD diet is the reason why I haven't had one of these flareups in 3 months, but i think its all 3 months combined. You all know I can normally tough this stuff out, but I've been in tears all day long. I can't sleep, I cant even sit in the same spot for too long without breaking into tears.

I'm about to leave for my 3 hour class, so I'm going to go a bit early and make sure I get a seat close to the door and tell my teacher before class that if I get too bad I'll just leave. I'll also ask one of the ladies if I can borrow her notes (because I expect to spend a lot of time crying in the bathroom).

And in case you are wondering, I'm not going to bother with the ER here in Regina, I'll somehow have to live until 10 pm tomorrow night when I go home on the bus to Canora, and go to the hospital. At least I know they'll give me something for the pain...

Lisa, I have been gluten-free since April of 2007 and was doing great. Then, the beginning of this year, all my gastritis, ibs etc. symptoms came back, horribly horribly. I sat down and recognized I was getting these symptoms and others even when eating gluten-free food, and began to wonder if I had problems with other foods. I've been on an elimination diet for a month. Within the first three days, ALL my stomach pain was gone, as well as my watery/itchy eyes and runny nose. I've been adding food in slowly. Good on dairy (yeah!), but allergic to chocolate, eggs, so far. Chocolate?

Lisa do you think maybe all the recent changes and stress in your life could have caused it?

I'm not sure, manda...it may have been part of it. I also did eat a bit of meat before then :/

By the way, I went to the doctor yesterday afternoon. The nurse who was there said "I haven't seen you in awhile", and I said "Yeah, kinda surprising isn't it?" she answered "Yes it is". How's that for a clue that I've been in the hospital too much??

It was the new doc, who I now like having as a doctor. He got the basic bloodwork done, felt around on the stomach, took a urine sample...of course everything was negative. I am still supposed to collect a couple stool samples, which I was supposed to give to them this weekend, BUT i haven't 'gone' since Friday afternoon so the samples will have to wait until this weekend, which is fine I'm sure. He is concerned about it, but said it's hard to give me any treatment without me having any diagnosis. So he said take Buscopan 3 times a day, and do whatever I've been doing now to to keep these flareups under control. Also said if I get bad again to go to the hosp here in Regina, if I can't get to Canora, and get them to phone to Canora hospital.

I did some research online and in my Crohn's book and it says that heat from either a heating pad or hot water bottle can help. So I have been trying that, too. I will be so happy once this flare dies down... :(

I didn't realize the post was a few days old when I first replied, how are you doing today? I don't have the same pain you have so I cannot compare but I do use the heating pain and it helps relax my cramps/pain. I also like to take warm baths....very relaxing.

Hope you are feeling better! :)

It's ok, I'm just glad someone DID reply! Because I always get pretty upset when I get these flareups since I feel so out of control.

I'm still "on fire", no doubt about that. Throw some arthritis into the mix and I didn't fall asleep until 5 am last night (or i guess...this morning?). Hopefully I won't have to go to the bathroom until I'm back at the apartment though, so I can at least collect my sample!

I'm currently drinking my daily dose of Tim Horton's coffee so maybe that will make me feel a little better. Nothing better than a good ol' caffeine buzz ;)
