I would hate to say, I think only after the test could a medical professional see whats up, could be your medication, how long have you been taking it and can you remember when this started? Was this after you were diagnosed with your auto-immune disease?
Would be good to hear how it turns out.
Well, I remember when I started taking oral iron supplements, my stomach could not tolerate them. I got so sick and I didn't know that the iron was causing the GI Flare. Just see what happens if you skip a dose of your iron. That is how i learned that the iron was the culprit causing the bleeding and flare.
I don't think it's the medication, I have been on my meds for almost 2 years. The stomach problems just started about a month ago. I was diagnosed with lupus in 2009 and I started out with 29 medications and my stomach never bothered me. I will see what the tests say. I will be sure to keep everyone posted.
Thank you Amy,
that could very well be the problem. My stomach started bothering me really bad about 2 months after I began taking the iron pills. That could be the culprit. I will be sure to keep you posted after the tests.
