Ahhhhh...those white-knuckler bms..I remember them well!!!
Your colon is raw, raw, raw...and anything at all that's in there..be it mucus, blood, stool, bile...anything...will be pushed along and away to be expelled at a high rate. The colon ends up in like a spasming mode and doesn't have the normal peristalsis contractions, etc anymore. it's a survival mechanism for the colon.
The fact that UC starts at the rectum and will be inflamed there regardless, think of it this way.....the rectum has lots of contractions and should be a slippery smooth area for whatever is in the colon to be expelled. A rectum in an advanced state of inflammation + having that many bms will try really, really hard to get anything and everything out fast asap...no matter what. So, add the extra contractions, spasms to a rectum that's raw (that's like having the outer layer of your skin peeled off after having scalding water poured over it) with anything passing through/over it..the pain will be horrific.
So, here comes the question....Are you not on any meds?
How long have you been in this state?
*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 3rd night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
