I get the twitches and have even before I knew I had colitis.
I asked so many doctors and none of them cared. They looked confused.
I have noticed the buzzing also. One strange thing I noticed which somewhat concerned my rheumatologist was that my right toe is not fully under my control - I cannot resist any pressure to keep it elevated. He said that sounded like a nerve issue and to keep him informed.
I was seeing the Rheum to see if I had Ankylosing Spondylitis. He said the Xray didn't show anything, and that I did not have the HLA gene, but that it doesn't really matter to him, that I probably do have "something" there in relation to the colitis.
I must confess I have been delving into conspiracy theory regarding UC lately. Whether Cell-phones could be doing this to us (ie in our pockets all day) or Chemtrails, or terrorism in the food/water supply. It can't be overlooked without thought.
Especially for those of us with *no* family history of autoimmune disease whatsoever.
Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis 6/2006 at age 26 after sudden E.R. visit
