I am so frustrated! For two years I have been complaining about pain that original started in my lower left pelvis area. That pain not covers my whole stomach.

That based on his observations, I have none of the typical symptoms. When I continued to complain that I didn't think my pain was from my Colitis - he told me I needed to talk to my regular doctor about my concerns because he didn't think they were related to the Colitis.

Honestly I am really scared at this point - and now almost always in pain!
