I just wanted to share this with the ladies of the group.
As I am newly diagnosed I have been devoting a lot of my time to reading and researching everything I can get my hands on. After reading that there is a correlation between the Pill and inflammation as well as auto-immune disorders, I stopped taking mine.
Within a few days my ulcers began to clear. I had one that was about the size of a quarter (!) on the back of my throat that I was beginning to think was going to be permanent. It had been eight weeks since I first noticed it and the Colchicine was doing nothing to take it away. After a week of not taking the pill it is GONE!! I had a moment last night of pain-free eating, which is very rare for me as the main sight of my ulcers is my mouth. Pain free eating ~ JOY!!
I have also been following an anti-inflammatory diet and taking vitamins and herbal supplements so this may also have contributed to my recovery. But I just thought I would share this small victory in case it could benefit anyone else in our little group.
