First of all I hope everyone is having a good holiday season.
Have any of you had sudden attacks of severe pain associated with the colitis?
On Christmas morning I had about
a five minute attack of really severe lower abdominal pain associated with the shakes and fever, and an urge to go to the washroom. My parents think it could have been me passing a kidney stone (found in an earlier ultrasound), but talking to a nurse today she thinks it doesn't sound like a kidney stone.
In the couple of days before this attack, I had a feeling that the colitis was coming into a flare again. After the attack, it seems like the colitis symptoms have settled, I'm just pretty tired and not wanting to eat a lot.
Anyway, if anyone has had sudden attacks like this with their colitis, please let me know. I'm going to see my family doctor tomorrow to see about
getting this checked out.
Any input is greatly appreciated - thanks again.
