I was just wondering if anyone else is suffering from both uc and gastric reflux or Gerd? I've been diagnosed with both for about 5 years each condition. Although I didn't make the connection initially I think the Gerd was exacerbated by taking oral steroids several years ago. Now I know of the link I no longer can take oral steroids. However I still suffer terrible bouts of Gerd from time to time. This latest flare up started about 6 weeks ago. Constant heartburn and even nausea daily. Then just over a week ago my 6 month remission of uc ended and I started bleeding again. So I'm suffering both ends at the moment! I just wondered if there is a known link between the 2 conditions and whether anyone else has this problem and how they cope with it.
Grateful for any advice or help to manage this.
Thanks for reading my post x
