ok, still have pain under my ribs, but now is on both sides.  Not really pain, more like discomfort.  Also, have a light brown poo color and when I wipe, there is yellow on the tissue.  Looks like bile to me.  And it burns when it comes out.  Any ideas?  I don't think it is UC related, but I don't know.  Anyone have this?

Not pain but the other symptoms are common to me. I have stopped looking at the tissue unless I have stomach pain. My feeling is, you have inflammation but its not too strong to bleed (but the pain substantiates my feeling)
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis since 2006, at the age of 30 years

Currently taking
100mg of Azathiprine, twice a day
2250mg of Balsalazide Hydrochloride, 3X a day
10mg of Vit. B12, once a day
500mg Salazopyrine suppository once a day.

30mg/day of Prednisolone since 2009/08/21 to control recent flare up, will reduce the dose by 5mg each week. (hoping not to swell up)

are you flaring at this time? what's the consistency of your stool....and how many times a day are you going?

if you're going more often, could be that there's not enough "bile" in the stool....that's what makes it brown actually.

Could be the Colazal.

Are you taking any fibre supplements, B vitamins, anything different in your diet lately?
