Recently diagnosed with Lymphocytic colitis. Treating with Pepto Bismol. Will this flareup go away and will I be able to eat those foods that are trigger foods for me right now? how long does it take for a flareup to go away. I have had this for going on 3 months. One of my symptoms is that I am really tired. Are you? Thanks for your help,. The dr's don't seem like this is a big deal. My daughter insists that I change my diet.

I have had lc for 6 years --the pepto-bismol is not a cure for flares but it will help with the severity of the flares.I have never had a flare up that goes away without seeing my doc.and getting a perscrip.for a antibiotic.You need to see your doc. damadge is being done to your colon and intestines when you go for long periods of time with flares .You are tired because you are dehydrated from using the bathroom so much.If your doc. thinks this is NOT a big deal,YOU NEED TO CHANGE DOCTORS ASAP..IT IS A VERY BIG DEAL,YOU HAVE INFLAMMATION IN YOUR INTESTINES AND COLON! The damadge being done IS NOT repairable..Get help right away!Changing your diet will not help until you get rid of the infection inside your body.Hope this will help you--good luck!
