I see so many posting talking about pain - but rarely a description of where the pain is. For the most part mine is in my stomach - i burns. But my whole stomach is swollen and I do have 'discomfort' a lot. No sharp, shooting pains ever. Just a contact ache. Is that what you all have? Or is the pain as individualized as the colitis itself?

I have had the burning that you describe, but it's not in my stomach--It's in various parts of my intestine. My abdomen tends to be distended.
