My UC has been "active" for the past 4 years, but over the past year, I've been on REMICADE and it seems to be improving a little every time. Recently, I started taking CORTISONE ENEMAS and those seemed to help me NOT wake up so much at nights (I used to wake up 4-6 times a night to poop, now only 1-2 times and even then, it seems to be more GAS than stool).
Today, I started to feel a SHARP PINCHING PAIN on my left side though. It comes and goes, and isn't really a major bother, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had something similar or knows what it might be. Seems like my stool is being "held back" more these days and then coming out more IN ONE SHOT, so it "feels" like it's my system "changing" from within, but maybe it's just a kidney stone or something.
