Trauma and colitis
I was hit by a truck while crossing in a parking lot.  It knocked me down but did not break any bones.  About 15 minutes after I was hit, my lower stomach started hurting.  My question is:  Can trauma like I had cause an attack of colitis?

Hi there!

Though trauma can cause secondary colitis, secondary to injury, it is unlikely to be responsible for primary inflammatory colitis.
Hope this information helps.

Take care!
