I have extremely bad all year round allergies. Especially since we moved up north to NJ from FL 2 yrs ago. I just found an allergies doctor up here and they wanted to test me to see if I needed shot therapy. They did the scratch test and I blew up like a blow fish, that was last Tuesday. That next morning I had terrible "D" - Sunday the pollen rate was off the charts and I felt terrible after being out side for a few hours and I had "D" that night. Yesterday I had my first round of shots at 7 OM - I woke up this morning and went really lose.
In between I have been regular and or constipated, can bad allergic reactions activate UC?
Having the body in a constantly fighting state can cause other issues to flare. UC isn't an allergy disease, but it is autoimmune...so if your allergies are causing huge problem, it can cause your UC to join the party in its own way.
Again, I don't think you're on enough UC rectal meds to get the inflammation under control and to keep it from overreacting.
Curious if you're on Singulair?
You can also try a fibre supplement and a good probiotic to help with the possible digestive "invaders".
It's all a matter of perspective!
I am going to see another doctor to make sure I am on the right meds, for my allergies I am on 2 noise sprays and Levocetirizine, a prescription antihistamine. I tried a probiotic but I got "d" every bad a few days after taking it, was not sure if it agreed with me.
I trake my "flare" moments and I went the entire month of March with 1 in April I have had 4 - all when I started taking Canasa, I go 3-5 days in between.... I am at a loss, just want to get better
