I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis back in in January of 2012. I first felt ill in October of 2011, on my birthday actually. Thought it was food poisoning at first cuz had bad cramping, diarrhea, bloating, pain, nausea, and vomiting. It wouldn't go away tho so ended up seeing Pcp 3x and two Gi dr.s who did c diff tests but came up with no results.
