Hi Babybee and welcome to HealingWell. I too have only recently joined this site. I was diagnosed with UC 13 years ago and IBS 2 months ago.Without this site i don't know what i would do.I was just wondering have you tried any mild laxatives. I know that i use Lactulose solution. I take 10 mls in the morning and and 10mls at night when i am C. This usually works for me(can take a day or 2) and i know other UC/IBS sufferers who do the same.I usually find that my pain is worse when i am badly C.Another more natural trick i use is to drink a pint of cooled boiled water first thing in the morning. Try and drink it as warm as you can tolerate. Maybe this isn't the right thing to do and others may advice you not to do this but it definitly works for me.Usually within a half hour of drinking the water i can completely empty my bowels.I would advice you to get an appointment straight away with your doc and demand that he carries out all possible tests as a matter of urgency.
I hope this is of some help to you.
