Question about UC

I've had watery stools since October.
My first visit about this was towards the end of October. It is a long story, but I am finally being referred to a gi and probably doing a colonoscopy. Most of my tests have been normal, but albumen is low and I have fecal leukocytes.

Everything I read has me leaning towards UC rather than chrone's unless it is a bacteria that wasn't seen on culture. Or something more serious.

Most of this time, I have maybe had uncomfortableness and definitely nausea (which began before October), but nothing I would call pain. I tend to call it an overall sense of weirdness. Over the past week or so, I seem to have bouts of more of what I would call pain. It isn't severe, but definitely not fun. It is actually causing me to look forward to testing.

Another thing I've begun to have is bloating. I don't think I've ever had this in my life. Is this ever a part of UC? I'm seriously trying not to worry so I don't want to go searching to find out if it is or not.

Re: Question about UC

Definatly get the colonoscopy...the only way to know if its UC or Chrones is by biopsy. Your symptoms could be UC, or IBS, or wont know till they scope. One thing about UC is there is usually blood in the stool...Good luck!
