I have recently been diagnosed with indeterminate colitis following positive feacal calprotectin levels (1780) and a colonoscopy with biopsies. I was originally commenced on asacol but found it gave me quite severe headaches so have now been changed to pentasa which I have been taking for 3 weeks approximately. I have over the last few days completely lost my appetite and finding my visits to the bathroom are increasing. If I do eat, i get stomach ache within 30 minutes and have to go to the bathroom. I mentioned to my Specialist nurse yesterday the fact I am feeling like something is stuck in my stomach and sometimes if I burp I actually bring up any food that I last ate. Once I bent over to get something not long after eating and I vomited as if something had been pushed up. My nurse thinks there is maybe something going on with my small bowel which has not yet been looked into. I am due to see my specialist nurse in 2 days but just wondered whether anyone else had had these symptoms and if investigated then what was it. I am constantly fatigued and do not feel that the pentasa has really done much. I realise it is early days and reading some of the other posts I realise that actually mines not too bad. I am just having trouble seeing a brighter future as I havent felt well now since March.
