    That sounds serious. Have you seen a specialist?

    Hi joy. I have ulcerative colitis also . It's very debilitating and can cause tremendous pain. I sympathize with you. I would advise a visit to yr gp and ask for r e referral to see a consultant in gastrointestinal conditions. It's yr right. Take care

      I had a colonoscopy on Monday and he confirmed what I already knew, it's just a nuisance having the stomach cramps and having been unwell for so long it has taken its toll, thank you for your advice.
