It was not horrible, but it started as a pain in the right side and then acted like a "band" into my lower back that ached.
I have this EXACT pain you are talking about
in the lower right side. I've had it since March and I am pretty positive it is a flare. Sometimes it switches over the my left side and to my back, etc. I also had alot of joint, back and leg pain. I had been concerned about
it being something "else" as well but had a pap recently and an exam and all is ok. So it is certainly a flare, for me anyway. I can't see my GI until June 7 but have been going back and forth to my family doctor for advice and meds.
Hope u feel better soon.
