I am a 25yr old male, with history of Severe UC, Currently my medications are Imuran, as well as Mesaline (5ASA).
I have had quite a range of symptoms over the period of having the disease (nearly 3-4 years) ranging from the standard significant weight (20kgs) loss, extreamly painful abdomen, loss of apetite, constant nausea, B12 Defiency, Iron Deficiency, (Blood Transfusion), Immune Weakness, sleep problems, fatuige, lethargy, and all the standard things associated with UC.
It was diognised as UC, through numerious tests and the likes, so there is no doubt that I do have UC, but thought it would be best to ask this question in this form to see if it is related.
I have found over the last few weeks (since moving into my parents house, whilst my partner and my house is being built for 3 months) that whenever I eat anything, and it hits my stomach, I get signifant stomach pains, bloating, pressure and fullness, it is always made worse by eating food, and over time it gets better (a few hours) however as soon as food or drink hits my stomach again it is made worse.
Fullness and Bloating
Tender to Touch
Sometimes a bit of a pulsing pain / sensation.
Sometimes it will get a little bit better if I lie down, but not very much, it will go from a moderate pain to a dull pain,
I was wondering what could cause this, could it be related to the UC, or would it more likely be something else? I am not sure if I should see my IBD specialist, who is more aware of the UC and medications I am on and the likes, or If it would be unrelated to the UC and I should see my GP who is not yet as filled in on my UC treatements, symptoms and the likes.
Thanks for any help!
