I can judge where i'm at in my flare. the middle (worst part) of my flare is when my colon or lower back hurts. It hurts to move and when i apply pressure to the area. I assume it's my colon b/c the left side hurts more often than the right side, but they both hurt sometimes.

currently:  3 weeks of flaring and finally improving.
RX/day:  Tapered Prednisone completely January 2008. Lost job and insurance 10/2007 and stopped taking asacol and Imuran cold turkey

Diet: SCD helps tremendously, but am not strictly on it.

Many times I can't tell if my back hurts because my gut is inflamed - or if my gut hurts because my back is inflamed.

Yep, I get back pain especially during a flare. Luckily it's not too bad--a heating pad will do the trick.
