Quicker the better: Treatment of uc with Prednisone is challenging. Prednisone 40 is a solid dose. There is no definite "safe amount of time." prednisone's side effects affect the body slowly, so i would say one month would be completely ok and then the longer you stay on such a dose, the more side effects (bloating, irritability, fluid retention, etc) you will have. Work with GI to limit use of predniosone. G.Luck.

Could be shingles: Varicella zoster, or shingles, can affect the ear canal and also affect the 7th cranial nerve causing bell's palsy. Have a dr look carefully into your ear canal to see if there are any rashes evident of shingles there. Good luck.

Ulcer or pancreatiti: This sounds like a stomach ulcer. An alternative would be pancreatitis. Pancreatic pain classically radiates to the back. Blood tests for lipase and amylase would diagnose pancreatitis. Need a video scope to look for gastric ulcer. Either way, you need to see a dr. If it is an ulcer and it ruptures, it could be life threatening.
