Unhappy Discomfort just above the belly bottom for almost 1 year

Hi,

Iīm a 36 male which was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis around 3 years ago.

After the first flare up all went well for 2 years just taking mesalazine tablets but almost a year ago I had another flare up.
Initially my GP gave me prednisone but as soon as I stop taking it the symptoms came back so I started taking azathioprine (inmuran) which seemed to do the job.

My concerns is because I have discomfort just above the belly bottom for several months (almost since the last flare up) and it doesnīt go away. Itīs not painful and I donīt have crumbs but itīs more a feeling of having that part of the colon very sensitive and some discomfort in that specific point.

Some people told me that it could be because Iīm azathioprine intolerant but I stop taking that medicine a month and a week ago and the symptoms remain. Itīs true that just after stop taking the azathioprine the symptoms improved a bit but for the last 3 weeks the symptoms didnīt keep improving. Some days they get better and almost disappear, but then they come back.
Before when I used to strongly press in the area of the discomfort with my fingers I felt a little puncture although since a week ago it has changed and I just feel like my hear beating were in that area now and not puncture!!

I visit the WC just once a day and I donīt see blood there although I have a lot of gasses lately (specially in the morning and evening just before going to bed).

The fact that I have this discomfort for several months is starting to worry me a lot so I would appreciate it if someone who have gone through something similar could share the experience. As I said before Iīm not an expert on this disease so Iīm not sure if these could be normal symptoms of it or something else.

Thank you very much.
