I don't get it either. I have been flaring since last November.
Now I have 2-3 BMs with formed and loose stools every morning. But the last BM is always water with thick blood or red/brown loose stools. No cramps nor diarrhea.
I don't know if I'm in remission or not.
UC since July 2006. Medications: Salofalk enema nightly.
Remission from Nov 2006 to Oct 2007. Then a bad cold and a bad flare till the present.
Pancolitis diagnosed in April 2008. Current medications: Salofalk enema, Salofalk tablets 1000mg x 3/day, Azathioprine 50 mg. Warfarin for my Deep Vein Thrombosis which resulted from diarrheas and dehydration in Feb 2008.
Supplements: Probiotics, Calcium with Vitamin D, Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin C and psyllium capsule
