Welcome to HealingWell!
I'm sorry to hear you are in so much discomfort. I know we have a couple members with UC and IBS. Unfortunately, the one I can remember is out of town all week (dbab - forum moderator). I know she hasn't had too many UC symptoms, although recently she has gone from C to D. I also know she is on an antispasmodic. Did your doc prescribe one for you? Any pain meds? Are you on anything for the UC (like steroids, etc.)? I know that many meds, and IBS, can contribute to variance in the consistency of BM's. I go from C to D and so I hardly ever have a "normal" BM. Recently, I remember seeing a post on here about
back pain.... so please know you are not alone.
I hope you find the help/support you are looking for here.
