Did anyone not have any or much symptoms before UC? I know alot of people can experience symptoms or signs months or years before being diagnosed with UC. BUt I never had problems. Never really had too much gas, burping, constipation, Diarrhea, etc. ANd I never had pain or mucus.
I am thinking about this b/c I remember my Pre-UC days when I could consume anything in any amount at any time and never have to worry at all about my digestive system. I still find it hard to fathom how my whole system could malfunction like it did.
