Ulcerative Colitis

While in a flare does everyone bleed? I always pass blood when I flare and I’ve been in an on and off flare for two years now but right now I have all the symptoms of a flare except bleeding which is a first.

I thought it could be cdiff but the diarrhea comes and goes and I don’t have a fever, my rectum keeps spasming and I’m in a lot of pain I don’t know what this could be. Any thoughts? Could it be a flare or cdiff? I know for cdiff they have to test it out I just don’t know if I should go to the ER or not this pain is just too much

Get checked for secondary infection.

What’s secondary infection?

If I were you I'd go to the ER and have them test you for c-diff. I'm currently going through c-diff and you don't have to be bleeding but the pain is really bad. Also I never got a fever when I get c-diff so it never hurts to make sure. Good luck and hope you're getting to feeling better soon!

If bleeding and cramping it's a flare, rest and get help

Yes. I bleed to varying degrees throughout a flare.

ER asap. It also depends where in your colon the disease is (location) and if you have ulcers. Some have colitis no ulsers. Educate yourself, ask every question to the professionals. Get second opinions.
