Ulcerative Colitis Symptom? - April 7th 2009, 01:23 AM

I'm just wondering. But is it a symptom for Ulcerative Colitis to feel tired a lot? I'm on medicine for the UC, so I figured that it would have stopped the lathargic issues.

well,

i looked on the internet, and I couldn't find anywhere that it says that fatigue is a symptom, but i am not a professional.

the lathargicness may be from the meds you are taking for the condition.

your best bet is to talk to a local pharmasist to get the correct information.

best luck

Thanks! And it did say that Fatigue is a symptom of UC, however I just thought that the meds would have cancelled that out. *shrugs*

For some reason I don't think that it's the meds though. I was lathargic when I had UC symptoms (before meds) once I was put on the meds I suddenly became hyper and more active.

Quote:
The main symptom of ulcerative colitis is frequent, watery diarrhoea that sometimes has blood and/or mucus in it. You may also have abdominal cramping during bowel movements.
Other symptoms include:
  • feeling like you haven't finished on the toilet
  • nausea
  • loss of appetite
  • weight loss
  • tiredness
  • inflammation (redness or pain) in the eyes, skin or joints.

The medicines that doctor's give are to help reduce the amounts of flare-ups of symptoms but they might not fully eliminate the symptoms.
