Thank You :)
Tomorrow i will go to GI and ask again for some tests and eventually I will make them on my own day after tomorrow.
I'm taking probiotics and synbiotics, but didn't notice any change, except denser stools... And I have no pains, just some grumble.
Hope it is nothing serious, like cancer...
before I was diagnosed with UC, I didn't have any abdominal pains either. I think it might have taken them longer to diagnose me because I basically just had chronic diarrhea but not many of the other tell tale UC symptoms. No abdominal pains, wasn't loosing weight, no blood, didn't notice any difference in overall mood or tiredness. My lower back hurt a lot but I didn't think it was correlated to the diarrhea and I recall telling my primary doctor that it was prob just a different problem and I was seeing a chiropractor for it. Though, the chiropractor wasn't helping after a few months and even he was starting to wonder why I wasn't improving much.
It took me about
4 to 5 months of seeing my primary doctor, doings tests and trying other things until I finally had a colonoscopy and was diagnosed with UC. It seemed almost immediately after I was diagnosed that all of the other lovely symptoms started to appear and I learned that my back pain was indeed caused by the UC.
