Ok so i've had this symptom with varying degree for like a year at least...But does anyone feel like their general abodomen area feels heavy when they stand up?? Sometimes it feels slightly bloated, but maybe just from inflammation? When im sitting or walking I don't realize it though...can this go away with stronger medication? any thoughts...im currently on entocort and pentasa...got a colonoscopy coming up and I wanna make sure I bring up the right things

I do feel that way, all the time, except for when I get up in the morning.  But the second I eat or drink anything it returns.  I think its something we just have to get used to.  Its hard, but I just always remind myself that it can be worse.

I feel heavy like that when I'm gettin a flare. It also hurts when you press down on certain areas. I know it's a flare because it hurts no matter if I eat or not. It sometimes feels like I'm carrying a bowling ball in my intestines. Just watch it and make sure you tell your doctor.
