IBD sufferers

Diagnosed with acute u/c, totally colectomy, stoma then pouch etc. Mostly good health with a few pouchitus outbreaks over the years. I'm fairly low maintenance (on no medication) and have a history of underplaying (and maybe not realising) how ill I am. I suppose I feel like I don't want to waste people's time.

My dilemma is this. Currently I am suffering with joint pain and muscle aches in my arms and fingers and my stomach lining and guts feel inflamed and oddly, my eyes hurt. It all kicked off with hot flushes and shivers and general weakness. It's been a couple of days now. Do I go to my GP first or directly to my IBD Team?
