How did they test for that? MRI? I am getting so stiff and sore every time I try to get moving lately. I keep telling myself it's because I am always pushing myself to stay fit (elliptical machine most mornings, strength training, and golf 2-3 rounds/week). But I wonder if it's starting to be something more. An MRI showed a very slightly bulging disk earlier this year, maybe it's just that getting irritated again. My bone density tests fine.

Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & now recovering from irritation scope caused. Will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.
