I am glad that you came here to vent. We all do understand what you are going thru. I am glad they are doing the c diff test as sometimes that can be confused with a flare. Also, we are really sensitive to foods, so sometimes we can eat the wrong thing and it can cause flare like symptoms. Something else that causes flare like symptoms for me is anxiety/stress. With my anxiety/stress I will get diarrhea, nausea and sometimes vomiting and will not feel like eating for days. You are fairly newly diagnosed so you may be confusing some of the symptoms with a flare, or you could truly be in flare. I know that sounds confusing, but after having this disease for as long as I have, I have learned to differentiate, and one day you will too. I suggest letting your doc do some testing to see if you really are flaring or if its one of the many side issues we can get. But I also know with the SCD diet I have heard that sometimes you will feel bad for awhile until the die off symptoms are over, so it still could be your body adjusting to the diet. Hopefully some of the SCD'ers will be along soon to discuss that aspect further. Hope they get you figured out soon. Hugs~
