Yes: Ulcerative colitis is a chronic disease of the colon, in which the lining becomes inflamed and develops tiny ulcers. Uc is the result of an abnormal response by your body's immune system by sending white blood cells into the lining of the intestines, where they produce chronic inflammation and ulcerations. Uc can cause abdominal discomfort and frequent bowel movements and occasionally bleeding.

You need to discuss : This with the doctor managing your uc meds. You may need an adjustment in your meds or at the least he needs to follow your progress closely.
