I'm having similar difficulties (especially the sediment descriptor, that's a good way to put it!), but I'm having a heck of a time getting it diagnosed. I thought it was stress, but such is not the case in my situation... it has almost gone and then returned with renewed violence twice now.
My doc has done sonograms, bloodwork, and stool cultures. He's ruled out everything under the sun (gallbladder, obstruction, etc.).
I've had to repeat the C-diff stool culture 3 times now, though, which I find strange. Wondering if maybe they found something?
I'll let you know if I figure anything out.
My doc approved a prednisone "burst" if I get desperate (40mg for 2 days, 30mg for 2 days, 20, etc until tapered). Something to have as a back up plan?
I hope it's truly just stress for you and that it disappears! Keep us posted, and good luck with the lease.

Remicade '05 through '08, with no other maintenance meds (ah, those were the days, eh?)
Tried Humira. Failed. Tried Gluten Free. Leaning towards Failure there too.
Cimzia (started 2-12-09) Again, not helping much, if at all.
Probiotics, Digestive Enzymes, Forvia vitamins, and calcium chewies
Feeling a bit jaded lately, but trying to keep my chin up.
