....do you remember the moment just before your hiding place was discovered during a game of hide-and-seek? Did you ever experience a wave suspenseful excitement that kind of warmed your guts and caused your GI areas to contract?
I ask this odd questions because I experience a similarly peculiar response at restful, quiet times and I absolutely relate it my UC either as a trigger or as a symptom.
It seems so out of place at the time and is totally different than a wave of cramps before diarrhea. It is neither unpleasant or pleasant, exactly, but it is a rather strong sensation. It is like a chemical such as adrenalin has been released but without the heavy breathing or racing heart. It is also not a frequent feeling, but I get it when my UC is about to take a turn for the worse.
I'm not sure I have explained this phenomenon properly at all. Does it sound familiar to anyone?
Also, relative to many people I know, I live a low stress life with a pathetic lack suspense and excitement that might be triggering these feelings.
