Well my personal opinion is that I usually give myself about
a week, if things continue and do not improve then I contact my GI. I find that I on occasion will have a bad 3-4 days, I personally do not consider that a flare, but generally just a bad spell because I ate something that didn't agree with me or had more stress than usual. And with those bad spells they never last a week, so for me if its longer than a week, I contact the doctor. JMHO
