I was diagnosed with UC on 20th May. I was given OCTASA tablets to take over a 2 month period ( 3 x 800mg per day ). For 9 days everything was much improved but on the 10th day I had severe stomach cramps and the bloody stools had returned. Two days later I felt fine until the evening when the cramps returned and over the weekend just gone I had cramps. It was as if I had the same symptoms as before the medication but now I had terrible stomach pain.
The stomach pains have now gone as of Monday morning but I am waking up with headaches throughout the day plus I have a weird sensation in the back of my throat when I breathe.
Prior to my diagnosis by colonoscopy I'd had UC symptoms for about 3 months with none of the additional pains etc.
Should I be eating a low fibre diet during this 2 month period because nothing was mentioned after I left hospital about diet.
I suppose my question is, are these all side effects of my medication or the UC?
