Unhappy Strange Symptoms

aloha all-

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!

Re: Strange Symptoms

yes me! ive never had diarrhea. i was dxd last year in summer. i think it means that the inflammation is in the lower end. ie rectum anus. the stool is already formed by the time it reaches there so it would be solid. also if there inflammation higher up it would mess with the formation iykwim and cause diarrhea. the constipation and blood is for the same reason. inflammation in the lower end. it means your colon is healed so its a positive, proctitis is harder to shift though. can be very stubborn. go easy on the laxitives and concentrate on some fibre and plenty of water.
