    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Had been diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and suffered for 5 years with all the symptoms.Only to find out that those 2 aspirin my doctor told me to take everyday were causing the ulcers and bleeding .Then my GI doctor knew what meds i was taking and did not tell me not to take aspirin family products.Then prescribed other aspirin related meds for the ulcers???Anyway the bleeding and other symptoms are gone but still have frequent bowel movements all day and every time I eat a meal.Scared to get far away from a bathroom.Anybody else have this problem? Help

    I have recently stopped taking all the vitamin supplements I was taking because I suspected that was causing my constipation... I used to have a fear of public RRs and now that I don't, I feel I have to 'go' practically after every time I eat! Have you tried probiotics? Not sure if they're helping or hurting me... I am going to try to add alot more fiber to my diet so maybe my movements are larger and less frequent...What do you think??
