I'm a little confused. You say your symptoms worsen in cold weather. But in your last post you say you can stay outside the whole day and not get diarrhea.

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  Everyone that answers on this forum is just a volunteer and most of us have other jobs.  You need to be patient in waiting for a response; you waited less than one day.  In the future wait three days for a response, and if you don't get one after three days, then reply to your post with the word "bump" so that it will be seen again.  It might be IBS, but I don't think it is UC.  I would recommend you try eliminating 100% of all lactose from your diet for 2 weeks to see if that helps.  What tests have you had?

thnx for ur response and sorry that I insisted to have the answer soo early, next time I will wait :) sorry again
ok I didnt do any test till now, only a CBC before 2 months and it was normal, am planning to see a doctor these days, but i wanna tell u something new, before 2 days when I had the diarrhea in that night I took 2 tablets of POXEDIUM (Chlordiazepoxide , Clidinium bromide) and since that time i didnt have a bowel motion but exessive wind is getting out (36 hours ago),,, could this be  suggestive of IBS or what?
thanks again for ur reply and plz forgive me

Why did you take the poxidium?  I would recommend you try eliminating 100% of all lactose from your diet for 2 weeks to see if that helps.

I'm thinking it could be lactose intolerance (different than a malabsorption).  Why did you take the poxidium?

People can develop lactose intolerance over time.  I would recommend you eliminate 100% of all lactose for 2 weeks to see if that helps.  If you are barely having any lactose anyways, this should be easy.
