Hi everyone, been dx with UC back in 2015. Was doing quite fine since the last flare in 2018, but in late February started feeling lots of pain in sigmoid, mucus, poorly formed stool etc. Eventually started bleeding and at one point was bleeding large clots at the beginning of March.
Escalated all the meds and supplements (rectal & oral mesalazine, qing dai, boswellia, omega-3, probiotics, low residue diet etc) and my symptoms reduced significantly. For about
3-4 days bleeding stopped entirely. Now weirdly bleeding is returning with streaks, but no mucus, stool well formed and basically no big pain. I have transient fatigue, some nights waking up with hot flashes and anxiety, but probably this is caused by stress since I'm constantly worried it could be polyps or something worse. I have colonoscopy scheduled in about
6 weeks. My calprotectin came back under 60 (50 is upper range), but this was done during few days when bleeding stopped entirely. CRP negative, ESR is ok, blood work ok.
Have any of you encountered something like this – just bleeding, without mucus production and no urgency/pain? Thanks
