This week has been weird. I’m half way through my sixth week of prednisolone, taking 10mg per day, and I’m getting a dull pain in my left side which I usually associate with a flare up. Only, everything else symptom-wise is fine. The pain isn’t too bad, I’m not needing pain killers, but I am noticing it more.
It doesn’t seem to matter what I eat; I get the pain and a need to go to the bathroom shortly after each meal. I only had soup for lunch but we were a little naughty and had Chinese for dinner, which has only ever made me bloat in the past.
Ah well, hopefully, next week will be better. I go down to 5mg of prednisolone per day on Wednesday but provided the mercaptopurine is doing what it’s meant to, I shouldn’t have any/too many issues. I’ve got a follow-up appointment with my GI at the hospital in a couple of weeks so I can always discuss things with him. I am hoping to have spoken to my GP about my high heart rate by then but we’ll see. I just hope I can get an appointment with her soon.
