I believe I have both also. I am in remission from my Uc, proven from a scope, but yet I am still having D in the mornings and sometimes intense cramping - which is new for me. I asked my doc about this and mentioned that I may have IBS. But what I take medication wise is what is prescribed for Ibs'ers and that is an anti-spasmodic - Bentyl. Ibs is highly food driven so you basically have to watch what you eat, not as if it's something we (Uc'ers) have to worry about or anything! ;) It can get very confusing that's for sure.
