So my subject line says it all!
I have UC..since 2006 as per my signature below but I think I may have IBS as well. There are lots of pple who have both I hear. I just can not figure out the difference. Hopeing to get some feedback here.
My symptoms that I think are related to IBS are as follows:
Going for a bm shortly after or during a meal.
Light cramping until I let out the
Urgency for bm (that is usually loose) if and when I get nervous. This is the main thing. When I have a stressful situation I may go 1-5 times in a 10 minute time frame. I know this can be from UC as well (the urgency and frequency) but it seems as though my butt is tied to my brain. I get nervous ..I sweat and I run to the bathroom. When I am done, it someitmes doesnt feel like im done and i will have to go again.
I dont know what foods affect me but I do have alot of gas..through the mouth by burping and the other way as well.
 
Oh yes, I also have stools that are VERY VERY thin at certain points of the day.
 
What do you think?

I have both. The way I have been able to tell what is making me ill at any one moment during the day is where the pain, pressure and nausea is located. If it is low down - I figure it is the colitis. If it is my stomach and I've eaten something, it is the IBS or even my gluten/dairy intolerance. Heaven knows if I am right or wrong, but it is the way I have found to cope right now.
Presently on: 600 mg. Remicade every 5 weeks
                   Venofer infusion every 5 weeks
                   B12 every 5 weeks              
                   12 Asacol daily
                   Zofran as needed
