Hi, I'm new here and aren't diagnosed with anything yet, am currently waiting for a referral from my GP . . . I don't know if I have UC . . . For a few weeks now weird stuff has been happening.
In the mornings I have to go to the bathroom a few times (6-15 times or so) and mostly in THE most incredible hurry, a few times I've been too late (both home and office are about
12 running paces from the loo, commute of 10 minutes is not fun at all).
What comes out varies between loads of mush and a couple of small thin bits, always bloody, then a little bit more blood and mucus to color the bowl for good measure. Followed by intense cramps (one time I fainted from this). A few times I fart and blood and pus stuff comes out involuntarily. That's the morning fun, happily in the afternoon I feel I need to go much less and only get blood clots. I'm a uni lecturer and luckily only have classes in the afternoon!
I lost some weight in this (from 154lb to 136lb, I'm 6'1"). I haven't noticed any dietary connection except for soda which I've cut out now (no improvement).
I feel pretty rubbish. Any UK people around who have an idea how long I can expect before seeing someone about
it? Is it safe to take immodium or something in the meantime. Any other recommendations for a bit more control. Finally does this ring a bell with UCers? i.e. could it be just a bug or something, I could be worried for nothing!
Sorry to be so long and thanks for reading! Hope things go as well as possible for you all today.
