Hello all....

I was diagnosed with UC back in 2005 after 2 months of pretty serious illness. After a round of Pred and Salofalc I went into remission and had absolutely no signs of UC for 2 full years. This brings me to now...

I am currently going through something, but I'm not sure if it's a flare or not? I find that I'm going to the bathroom every time I eat anything, the sense of urgency is really bad, but here's the kicker... there is no diareha at all? Is it possible to be in a flare up and still have normal BM just a lot of them? I also have a constant feeling of nausea and cramping.

This is my first issue at all since my diagnosis so I would really appreciate any type of advice that is available.

Agh! If only I was as lucky as you! :) But to answer your question, yes it's still possible to have urgency with no diarrhea - though it's rare if you are flaring. I am considered in remission and even though my stool is not ideal I still get the morning urgency. As for the cramping and nausea - are you male or female? If female, does this correspond to your cycle? If it becomes too bothersome, do you have a GI you can call? How long has this been going on?

Oh and welcome to Healingwell :)

wow thanks for the quick reply and the welcome....

I am a 29 year old male. I definitely find the problem to be more severe in the morning, actually most mornings I'm woken up by the urge to run to the bathroom. By mid afternoon I am actually feeling close to "normal" although as soon as I eat dinner my stomach is upside down for the rest of the night. The problem is that I can't keep any food in me so I an very tired all the time. I went to see my GI how did some "poking" around and said that there was no sign of inflamation which confuses me even more. If this is not a flare up then what is going on? This has been going on since about the middle of July only lately it has been really bad, so much so that I've been off work for a while now. It's just to difficult to have to keep jumping up and running out of meetings to find the nearest bathroom so I thought I would take some time off.

I'm wondering if maybe you picked up a "bug" somewhere. Can you request a fecal test from your GI to see if you have any parasites or infections?

You might want to eliminate celiac disease/gluten sensitivity. Or you could have other delayed food allergies or sensitivities. Keeping a food journal to track symptoms can be helpful.
