I was 33, but I'd suffered with "irritable bowel syndrome" for years - diagnosed in college - and I can remember having "stomach aches," "nervous stomach," and being constipated since I was a child. They did an upper and lower GI on me when I was about
nine years old and found nothing.
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis spring 1999
C-scope confirmed UC diagnosis 9/18/2007
