Ulcerative Colitis: Common symptoms include bloody stools or diarrhea, lower abdominal pain, fevers. Anyone with blood in their stools should have it evaluated. Sometimes it's nothing serious, like a hemorrhoid or an anal fissure. But if you have ulcerative colitis (an autoimmune disease), you need to be followed by a GI specialist all your life, so find out for sure.
