I feel your pain.

Hello i just came across this site and am happy to see that there is somewhere to relate with others who have the same illnesses. I have had uc since Sept of 2003. I have just had another flare up since the end of April, still fighting it. I too stay away from food ,i will feel the pain start as soon as i put the food in my mouth. I only eat the blandest of foods when having an attack. I have been on Prednisone for almost 2 mths now and have been weening off them until last week when it started all over again, so my specialist put me back up to a higher dosage. I am still waiting for these to kick in and help me. I am so tired of being sick , afraid of food and do not really leave the house. My med is Salofalk i take 8 per day ,they seemed to work for quite some time till the last 2 mths. Stress is a cause of flare ups and so is certain foods. When i am having a flare up i stay away from all high fiber foods. Good luck
