There are many symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis. Symptoms can come and go without any specific order or reason. There will be times you are fine (remission) and there will be times you will have symptoms (flare). Please feel free to check out the many pages of information that I have for you. I spent many hours researching the colon and Ulcerative Colitis.
Every body is different, therefore everybody’s symptoms can be different. Some people have no pain, others will have a lot of pain. Some have blood mixed with diarrhea, others have no blood, etc.
There are also extraintestinal symptoms you may experience. These are symptoms that are common to people with Ulcerative Colitis but are not colon related. “25% of people with Ulcerative Colitis will develop extraintestinal manifestations.”(1) You may or may not have extraintestinal symptoms. Most of the extraintestinal symptoms are caused from inflammation.
