Katie..I agree for you to not wait too long before considering your situation as possibly more serious than just nothing.
Are you bleeding as well? It could be related to the malrotated colon rather than UC?
I think it would be best to get yourself checked out if it continues longer than a day.
What do your parents say about
it? They must be worried.
Keep us posted as to how you're doing. I can certainly understand the feeling of anger toward your body. Big time!
