I am 25 and have been diagnosed with UC for about four years now and have finally found a medication that suits me and my body (Salofalk granules.) I was previously on Asacol but struggled to digest this so was admitted to hospital during a severe flare up. However ever since I have started on the Salofalk I have found a vast improvement and had less relapses; that was until early last week. I seem to be finding this flare up harder than the rest as I can't seem to stabilize it on my own, and was wondering if you would recommend me seeing my doctor for advice? I have reservations as my doctor is never very understanding and makes me feel a bit of a phoney. My terrible cramping, bleeding and severe migraines are causing my body to get weaker and weaker, finding going to work and doing simple tasks a giant mission. I have also had a weight loss of 5lbs since last week which is alarming for me as I have never weighed this little. Basically I felt compelled to find this forum as I have felt very alone with this illness and find it hard to make anyone (doctors, family etc) actually understand what it is like to have UC as it is an invisible illness. I would just love any advice and to maybe not feel as alone as I do right now. Thankyou
