i have had a fever of over 38 degrees, terrible all over abdominal cramps, runny tummy &  constipation alternated, and a very very bad headache since thursday.
on friday a gp diagnosed flu?
this morning (monday) a different gp diagnosed colitis - without doing test of any sort.
do headaches and fever fit into the colitis diagnosis? isn' t colitis a chronic illness that needs treatment?
i was given scopes and bevispas today. have been on ranclav 1 since friday.

Dear Anonymous
Colitis means inflammation of the bowel and can be a result of diarrhoea ( it is not the same disease as ulcerative colitis which is a chronic auto immune inflammatory disease) Give the Ranclav some time to work but take probiotics with it - at least 2 three times per day. Did the fever break yet?
