So I am a little bit new to this flare thing. I was only dx last fall and have been really good this summer but for the last week my joint pains have been KILLING me and tonight I saw blood in my poo :(

Does this mean I am starting a flare ?
Or just that the joint pains are due to cold weather and the blood is just some freak thing :S

How do your flares start?

Good question. Keep track and see if weather changes bother joints. Or if something you ate roughed up the intestine. Sugar bad for joints. I do have those symtoms when flaring.

Mine start with my stomach being upset generally....all the time. Blood in the stool comes later. It takes a little while for the intestines to become inflamed enough to start seeing the result in your stool. And of course the cramps :/

I can't say though. Like Trigirl said, just keep a really close eye on it, and be really careful with what you eat (like you don't anyway!).

Rest when you need to, please...

the only change I made is that I have been staying in Sweden for 3 weeks in heat and now I am home in Iceland in colder weather.

I have to move :P

But I will try to find something else I am eating
