Flax is supposed to be so good for inflammation, but I would stop it and see if it makes any difference. I have been meaning to try the flax oil for so long. Are you eating a different cereal than you used to? It may be that. I noticed when I eat Total or Raisin Bran it is too rough for me. You never know, it could be both, or nothing. I felt that the Probiotics, Fish Oil pills and aloe juice all made me worse... Sorry you are flaring.
