    Question Acute colitis not healing? What's going on?

    For 11 months I was on doxycyline to try to help clear my skin. I stopped around last March. Then in July I began 4 months of isotretinoin. At the end of my fourth month I experienced a pain below my navel and I went to the doctor. He thought it might be appendicitis because of the mild pain when pressing down in that area. The ER diagnosed me with acute colitis and gave me two antibiotics: flagyl and cipro. After 10 days, I returned to the doctor who said I was all good. It is now a month later and I am still having abdominal pressure and random mild pains in the appendix area/below my navel/lower abdomen. I go to the bathroom once or twice a day, narrower than was normal for me a few months ago. I do not have any severe pain but I do not know what is going on. Is this still acute colitis? Should I try to see a gastroenterologist? I am very worried.
