I was diagnosed in April with UC, they've tried all sorts of medications, mesalazine, mercaptopurine, Azathioprine, multiple rounds of steroids, IV hydrocaustizone, mesalazine enemas, and NOTHING is working!!! the mercaptopurine was working really well for me but started to give me intense migraines pretty much keeping me in bed all day everyday! saw my doc yesterday and hes put me on the azathioprine, but its making me feel faint, im being sick, i have the runs!! he said that this is pretty much my last option and then he isnt sure what else to suggest, this could mean surgery but that terrifies me! i am also severely aneamic which isnt helping me stay normal and go to school every day! has anyone got any tips or advice on what to suggest now? i'm only 17 and feel like this is ruining the best years of my life!
