That is how i feel most days. I am having the same concern as you. My Dr. says that I am in remission because my blood work looks good, but i don't feel 100%. I don't think I am flaring necessarily, but my colon and back are in constant pain... Sorry I am not of much help though :(

I get lower back pain when flaring too - very uncomfortable. Nice to know I'm not the only person that gets this though!

When I was in a bad flare, I spoke of the horse standing on my lower back and the steel wool working its way through my colon. Not a fun feeling.
