Hey everyone I was diagnosed with UC in January of this year.. I've had ups and downs always go to the toilet like 9/10 times a day but with medication I'm thankful I only go around 5 times id say now. I always bleed and get really tierd.. My weight goes up and down due to the meds I'm on
So on Thursday night I was feeling pains in my stomach Friday morning I went to the toilet 3 times just usual blood etc. my stomach bacame very bloated and sore. I was getting shooting pains all day and felt so warm. I came home and went for a bath that eased the pain. Was awake all Friday and spent Saturday in bed.. My bones Nd everything were sore! Even when I brushed my teeth my gums were so sore!!!!! Cut a long story short I hadn't been to the toilet (it's now 2pm Sunday) I felt awful.. I got an out of hours appointment and the doctor gave me lactulose to hopefully shift my bowels!she had a look and feel and said there was nothing sinister going on and my tummy was nice and soft.
I've took the lactulose and yea it worked!!! But I'm still getting pains like cramping.. They have significantly went since I've been to the toilet and only come now and again
Can any of you relate to this? Should I keep taking lactulose? Also is this a flare as I'm constipated?? I didn't know people with UC could get constipated.. With the lactulose She said it could take a minimum of 6 hours to a day maybe to work! But with me it worked straight away
Thanks in advance x
