I have been having a persistent lower back pain and tail bone pain since last summer. GI wants to eliminate the possibility ankylosing spondylitis. On a more positive note, I am switching from the 6 asacol pills/day to 2 lialda pills/day. He also told me that I could stop losing weight but, you know, the chicks dig the slimmer physique. yeah
Mild pancolitis with some diverticular pockets diagnosed in April '08
Currently on 400 mg Asacol X 6 per day

For your sake, I hope you don't have AS but at least if you do, maybe it will be caught early enough so you can be put on medications to slow the progression.

Hopefully you don't have AS, good luck with you colonoscopy.

Diagnosed 2/29/08 with Mild Universal UC
I've had UC since 2000 but was in remission for most of those 8 years med free
Lialda Colazal & Asacol made symptoms worse, MUCH worse
Not taking any meds for now. May be on 6mp soon?
