Abdominal pain

I’ve been diagnosed with colitis in 2012. I take Pentasa and have had very few flares. When I get stressed is when the flares happen. This time, I’ve had a few bad months of constant stress and anxiety. I’ve had intermittent pain in my lower abdomen for about a month but no other symptoms. Anyone else experiencing this? I don’t know if I should see my doctor or not. It’s distressing to say the least. Any input would be appreciated.
