Ok, So I have been having really bad abdominal pain since Wed. No bleeding and only D yesterday
about 7 times. I'm just wondering if anyone has had this happen?? The pain almost feels like my insides
are raw..not much cramping, just pain! I did'nt eat anything from Wed till Thur evening and when I did
the pain got worse.. Could it be something else, like a stomach ulcer or has anyone else had this happen with UC?? I had an appt with my GI on Thur and he listened to my stomach and said it sounded irritated but he could'nt really answer my questions, just added Colazal to my 6mp....Any insight would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!

     Where exactly is the pain located?  If in the upper portion of the stomach below the rib cage, yes it could be an ulcer.  Don't ya just love when all the doctor does is press on your tummy and prescribe another med?

Its actually lower mid abdomen and left side. I know, as soon as you tell the doc something, he's like, ok then try this med. I guess that's why they are practicing docs. I feel like I get more info from this site than anywhere else.
