I just flared recently myself and was experiencing symptoms much like I did in my early days with this disease. I got alot of cramps, D and really bad rectal spasms. I am on Pred again (grrr) but it is helping me to feel better. I would try to watch your diet closely and try to eat things that are easy to chew and easy to digest. Good luck!
