I have read some of the posts about feeling better after exercise. I have noticed that even when in a flare when I am doing an activity that requires energy and attention my bowels usually leave me alone. For example, when at work (I'm a teacher) I have never felt a strong urge while teaching a class, but have felt it right after the class is over. Or when I'm playing softball, I won't feel the urge during the game but on the way to the car I'll have to stop at the bathroom. Does anybody else notice this?
