Comment from: Miserable, 35-44 Female (Patient) Published: January 10

I initially thought I had a stomach virus, but after a month the symptoms had not gone away. I was miserable with uncontrollable diarrhea, stomach cramps, intestinal cramps, fever, fatigue, dizzy spells, hot flashes, mental confusion, and a facial rash. I went to a gastroenterologist and he did a colonoscopy. Luckily, he had done a biopsy or he would have never known I had collagenous colitis, in an otherwise normal-looking colon.
