Hello all!

I have had UC for over 15 years. I am currently in remission, but last Wed. started feeling just crummy. Horrible nausea. I first attributed it to 2 days of intense workouts. (I hadnt worked out in a long time and just over did it and went full force for 2 days.) The nausea came the next day...but it has lasted all through to this weekend. And if anyone knows, when your stomach is feeling gross, it just spreads to your whole body and everything feels a yuck.

Then to top it off, I started feeling VERY constipated. I tend to have troubles in this area a few times a year, so I know when I need to start some Miralax or do something in laxative form. So yesterday, having being the first day in a week with not too much nausea, I (unfortunately) took a laxative...which then went into effect at 11:00 last night. Im in the clear now (pardon the pun) and there was no blood or mucus. Thankfully.

All is good now, but my stomach is still a bit touchy.

Ive been trying to figure out if it was exercise induced nausea or maybe a bit of an intestinal bug. Just wondering if anyone with the same touchy intestines ever feels just "off" for a week or so??
Thanks.

That sucks!!!! Definitely over did it, maybe try some pilates/yoga and lay off any cardio for a bit until you're feeling better then work into it gradually...even without IBD just starting out with exercise should be done progressively and not hard-core right off the bat.

Feel better soon :)

Thanks!!
Yoga is definitely in the plans. I should have known better....I'm 38. Not old by all means, but that's not 29. I can tell a difference. ha ha.

Just wish I knew if that really was the reason.

 Hang in there and don't give up.  You just have to have patience and build up gradually.  I was in the hospital 12 days back in 2004 and felt so bad that I thought that I would never be able to do anything strenuous again.  I found my way to stay in remission (almost 2 years now) and have returned to my two favorite hobbies;  deep-sea fishing for large game fish and backpacking over rough mountainous terrain.   Find your way to stay in remission most of the time and then gradually work back into exercise and sports.  Best wishes and God bless you.  (PS I am 58 years old)

I'd tend to think it's more likely you had a stomach/intestinal bug. If the nausea was exercise induced, I think it would have happened during or more closely after your workouts. Once you feel "normal" again, I'd get back into your workouts slowly and ramp up. Regular cardio, weight training and stretching is an important part of a healthy lifestyle needed to manage IBD. I'm working out intensely and am in better shape than ever at 42.

True what princesa said, my son was at a workout camp last sunday morning and it was hugely intense, 5 minutes before class ended he threw up (he's 16 and in amazing shape) and everyone told him not to feel bad cuz it's happend to all of them too and that's why they never eat solids before going to class, they do shakes instead so that during the intense workout that goes for 1 hour straight with no breaks they don't throw up. Probably was a bit of a bug and not the workout in your case, but you should still always ease into intensity...especially if "teen" no longer describes your age LOL.

Thanks for the responses! The more I think about it, the more I think it was a bug. Yesterday and today, i pretty much feel back to normal. No nausea. Just weird gassiness. Im only assuming because of the laxative and major after effects from that that came on Monday night.
