How much do you sleep during a flare up

Nearly three out of four ulcerative colitis (UC) sufferers (73 percent) responding to a new nationwide survey say not feeling well has become a normal part of life. Furthermore, they describe UC as disruptive when it comes to their relationship with a spouse (64 percent), their sexual relations (75 percent) and their emotional state (82 percent).
How do you cope with colitis ? Are you struggling with the emotional effects ? Even if a problem shared isn't a problem halved it may help to discuss it with people in the same situation.

How much do you sleep during a flare up

Hi,
I am having quite a nasty flare up just now & been on steroids for a week.
I am sleeping for around 16 hours a day (on and off) & around toilet trips & I am constantly tired - is this normal?

Hi, it is quite normal to feel tired or washed out during a flare up, your body is busy fighting the disease, the steroids should get a grip of it soon and you will feel your old self before long. Phil
