Stomach Aches

I was diagnosed with colitis in the beginning of the year. I have a mild case. i was hospitalized back in early may for a day (my first flare up) but have been doing relatively ok.

Since friday (8/1/08) I have been having stomach aches off and on throughout the day. Sometimes i actually go and make a bowel movement and it relieves it other times i just wait it out and it goes away after like 10 mins. I haven't drank alcohol or smoked cigarettes in the past 2 weeks per doctors orders(i casually smoke while i drink alcohol on weekends) I didn't start having the stomach aches till a week or so after i quit drinking/smoking so i don't think that has anything to do with it. However i was taking flagyl a few days before it started up and as of 2 days ago took myself off it cause i thought it might be a side effect but the aches contnued. I take Colazal 3 times a day and take fish oil supplements also.

Is there anyway to relieve these stomach aches?

Hi,
In some patients IBS is associated with UC and these patients may have abdominal pain similar to what you suffer from.
Antispasmodics are useful in these patients.
You can consult your doctor before taking antispasmodics.
