Hi, I have had UC since 1996 with periods of remission. I have been symptom free for about 3 years but lately my symptoms have returned.

My Mom was diagnosed with UC. UC has truly affected her life. She has experienced bloating, bleeding, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, fatigue & loss of appetite. She takes medication, but there is no hope that this is ever going to go away.

My second flare started in March with severe diarrhea. The first day then blood started showing in bowel movements that increased over a period of time. Soon there was bloody mucous instead of solid waste. I'm still not in remission, in fact, symptoms have increased slowly, but steadily until this last week the symptoms have seemed to calm down a little.
