In brief: UC

Sounds like you should have a colonoscopy to rule out inflammatory bowel disease such as your brother has.

In brief: Talk w/your doctor

Your own physician is carrying out a careful evaluation of your complaints, and this is in process.
Ulcerative colitis and other causes are possible with these symptoms. Please continue to work with your doctor on these issues so you can get any treatment you may need. Hopefully your colon will be examined too. Good luck to you.

In brief: Wrong priority!

Sorry, but you family history and clinical symptoms speak about your gut/colon.
I would leave gb us for after a proper examination of your colon first when nothing should be found there! this is at least what i would do!
