this is happening to me a lot right now, regardless of if the exercise is walking, running, swimming, etc.... once done, I have the urgent need to go, sometimes multiple times in short periods of times, and it is NEVER formed. always watery. does this happen to anyone else? thanks

It doesn't happen to me thank goodness...what if you try something more low impact, yoga, pilates rather than running, swimming and walking? You could try a stationary bike for a short period of time, 10-15 minutes tops and then move onto low impact floor exercises, yoga, ect, because maybe with running, swimming and such it's too much bouncing around in your guts and it's causing this reaction.

It's always better to do something rather than nothing, if it were me I would just modify it so I could continue getting regular exercise in.

Good luck!

I agree with PB4, I use a stationary bike and no problems there, good luck and I hope you find a way to exercise and be comfortable.

I posted about this awhile back. I get D when I run on the treadmill. There is actually a phenomenon (sp?!) called Runner's Diarhea.

Ya and that's exactly the reason why I've never implemented running/jogging into my exercise regime and likely never will...besides at my age (and having had 2 kids) and even with the regular exercising I've been doing for yrs now, I still feel jello-ish and running just makes some things bounce waaay out of control and it's simply depressing to me.

Yes, this happens to me if I over work my body.  During a flare it is horrible which is why I work out at home.
Dx:  UC Proctitis 2006
Meds:  None so far. Garlic works to ease flares. My GI laughed when I told him and said it was just coincidence.
Diet:  Regular fresh garlic, Biobest yogurt daily, Omega 3 supplements, very limited junk food, carbs and processed food, low fat diet.  Lots of fresh fruit and veggies (limited potatoes). 
Added: tumeric and probiotics.
