I am 26 years years old and have been diagnosed with UC for 2 years now. I am currently experiencing a flare-up and have been now for 3 months. Is that an usual long time or is this normal? I am taking 20mg of prednisone, lialda, mesalamine, vsl#3, and vitamins. I am also wondering about what exactly you call a flare up? I am a bit confused because I hear these stories of people running to the bathroom and dealing with all this pain. The only symptoms I have ever had are blood, loss of weight, and less than solid bm's. Is it going to get worse with time?
