Hi all. I have been diagnosed with Ulcerative colotis couple months ago. Went into bad flare up and was hospitalized with acute UC. Currently taking 40 mg prednisone once daily for a week. Only 2 days ago my BM was improved with less blood, but frequency of running to the bathroom is awefull. I am waking up 10 times per night and run to the bathroom. Does anyone know if prednisone should help with this issue? I also have cramps before using the restroom. Couple days ago my bones ( legs, ankles, knees ) started to hurt, esp at night. I am not able to sleep at night due to urgency using a bathroom so often. I was hoping prednisone with help with frequency.
