    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??
