| | UC and stress
Hi all - I have a question for all of you that have been long time sufferers of IBS or UC. My son has been preliminarily diagnosed with UC (waiting for the g.e. appt). I understand how stressful it is - poor kid (13 years old) is constantly in the bathroom (20 times a day, at least). But it also seems that it has run over into all other areas of his life. He cannot make any decisions. Also, if he is around more than 2 or 3 people at a time, his stomach starts up and he is running to the bathroom. Is this a normal reaction/symptom?
