Pelvic pain with UC?

Posted , 2 users are following.

I found out last year I have ulcerative colitis and proctitis. Recently iv being suffering with lower back pain and lower abdomen pain. Am I right in saying that pelvis pain is one of the problems associated with IBD? I am having an internal check this Friday but they won't do a smear as I'm not due till next year. I don't have any other symptoms.

The pain is on and off and only mild and it is relived when I apply a hot water bottle and relax. It is not associated to my monthly cycle. Any ideas? Thank you.

    Hi Bexcd

       I kave proctitis but I have managed to overcome it. For me it is definitely related to food alergy; Gluten, and Lactose. My doctor put me onto, Budenofalk which helped a lot, but for future I will be cutting on milk and some (not all) dairy, as I  I make my own yoghurt with lactose free milk, and 1-2 add probiotic tablets. Tasted nice and refreshing.

      Hello,

      Yes I am also gluten free and can't drink too much milk. Did you have pelvis pain at all? I think that maybe the pain is making it feel like it's in my stomach and back but it's actually my colon?

    Hi

       I strongly suggest a coloscopy in consultation with your GP, to ensure it nothing major (e.g. cancer). But I did not have any pain, just regular bleeding with mucus and gassing (caused by lactose and bad bacteria). I also found out about Oregano oil to clean the colon. I got some direct from UK yesterday, could not find any in Australia. Budenofalk also an immune suppresant drug helped the first time I used it.

    Hi

      Sorry about my spelling, yes. Colonoscopy is important. I do it every 4 years, to check for pulips, that very likely to turn to cancer after several years.

      Hi, my last colonoscopy was April 2016.

      My dr just called and is going to give me a blood test to detect any inflammation. If that's negative I will have a pelvis ultrasound.
