i have constant pain right in the same spot. it goes from dull and mild to sharp and excrutiating and everywhere in between.
so it is normal for me as i am in a flare at the moment.
also, i am taking endone (oxycontin = opiate) for the pain and it causes constipation too.
so normal for me is some days i have D and other days its more formed, and all of the time it feels like a poo is stuck in my colon on the lower left side and just aches and hurts.
i think the word normal in regards to poos and UC is a bit ironic.
steph - 32 - female - UC since 2000
currently flaring again.. grrr! (triggered by stress - grrr)
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day)

vitamin D3 x1 a day
prednisolone 25mg x1 a day (ick ick and did i say ick?)
tumeric capsules x3 a day
