need help

Hi, I have a question about colitis . I went to my doctor last week after experiencing alot of gas all around my stomach. he put me on a natural inhipitar forget the name but it works like prilosac, acid reduction, he also gave me lexapro 5 mg a day. That night i experienced pain right below my right breast bone and in my shoulder, he told me to eat light foods and to continue taking meds. the following day i was constipated all day and still had a pocket of gas under near right rib, but had a normal bowel movement that night. the next day the still had the gas pain on right but that night had diahrea, the following night had diahrea again. I was eating very light foods and drinking alot of tea.then today the pain in ribs finally went away but i felt some cramping just below my belly button, and had a pencil thin stool, and felt much better then ever but a little nausuos..and when i wiped myself the stool was mucousy,,,this scared me because at the first dr visit he asked me about mucous when i was conserned about colitis...i am 41 yrs old have always had normal bowel movements. but a few years ago i found out i had h pylori, and was treated,,he tested again for that, and i go back next week..i am afraid he might tell me i need a colonoscopy and dread not the proceedure or even the prep, but the being drugged part freaks me out...people tell me to relax that my nerves are making everything worse, but this stuff scares me..any answers advice would be greatly appreciated...i am also under alot of stress right husband is going in for surgery...(somewhat major) and i juat had an abnormal mammogram scare...please help..thanks
