It's very possible. My whole nightmare with this disease started with c.difficile. I still get it about
once a year. The symptoms (for me) are the exact same as colitis, however, I seem to have way more trips to the bathroom just to pass blood when I have c. diff. If you were on a course of antibiotics and your UC symptoms seem to be worse, I would definitely get checked for c.diff. The test is done through stool samples. They usually require two samples..no fun!
