It's different for everyone, but I've been having pain on my left side almost every day for the past 1.5 years since I was diagnosed (pain goes all the way up the descending side). Still trying to get it under control, and about
to start Remicade within the next couple weeks. Been pretty bad today, just took a pain pill to help so I can get to sleep. You should still call you doctor just incase it's something else, just to be sure, but it sounds like the symptoms I have constantly, though it's usually worse in the morning through midday.
