Considering you have diverticulitis...could it be related to that and not UC?
You could consider to ask the doc for an antispasmodic....if you get that often.
Could it have been something you ate? I had a bout of unbelievable cramping for the past few days because of the fibre in the
cookies I consumed. Old lessens aren't remembered sometimes..but they were sooooo good. I'll stick to one in the future.
Hope you feel better soon.
If it continues and it's not the norm for you...definitely see the doctor.
Do you have any rectal meds? If you're noticing butt cramping during bms..it's a flare.
*Heather* Status..Asacol (3 x2 daily); flaring /Dec 22, tapered to every 3rd nite..back to nightly (Jan 22)..tapered too fast
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed; Ranitidine (reflux); Effexor XR 75mg(depression); Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
