Happy Birthday RA&CD132010!!! I am sorry you are feeling bad, and on your birthday too! I get times when I will be sick for 3-5 days and then fine after that. I use to always think mine were little flares, but for me at least, I figured out it was usually stress or anxiety triggering those bad days. Have you had any increased stress lately? When my stressful or anxious times happen I immediately get diarrhea and nausea, can't eat etc. I have found by taking my Xanax at the first hint I can stop it in its tracks.
That might not be going on with you, but I just wanted to give you what I think mine are and see if you could relate. Hope you get feeling better soon.
