| | Strange Symptoms
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis when I was 9 years old. I am now 23. Every flare up I've had, I've had obvious symptoms (fever, bloody diarrhea, weight loss, anemia, etc). Lately though, I've been constipated like no other. I can go a week/ week and a half without going unless i take something. My tummy is swollen and painful, and I've notice some dark/muscousy blood, but not a ton. What the heck is going on with me? Has anyone had a flare up without having diarrhea? I'm having a routine colonoscopy in a couple weeks. Constipation seems to be the exact opposite of Ulcerative Colitis and I can't find much information from the internet. HELP me!
