I have had colitis for 25 years with flare ups occasionally. The past two years it cannot be controlled and I have been on predinisone all the time. Varying strengths. My problems have never gone away. Now i have episodes several times a week with throwing up along with the other problem. and it last for several hours. Has anybody had this happen?
