Joyce’s Ulcerative Colitis seems to be in complete remission but she still experiences the chronic rectal pain. A heating pad relieves it somewhat. Sitting and standing for a period of time makes it worse. Lying down at bedtime, her pain gradually subsides, and she doesn’t have problems sleeping through the night.

I was diagnosed after two colonoscopies in 2013 but either I’m in denial or I don’t have UC. I only experienced blood in my poop for 5 months and a feeling of not being able to empty, no other symptoms.
