Hi everyone :)

I am having a minor setback with my symptoms.. Liquipoopie, right sided pain and bloating is back slightly today, but I think I know the culprit.. I had a wisdom tooth pulled yesterday and to prepare for it, I had to adjust the times I take my meds.... Because of a fast for anesthesia, Instead of taking my meds in the morning, I had to take them at midnight the night before.. then was able to take my evening meds on time last evening...

Plus, all the crap I must have swallowed after getting that tooth pulled and all the anxiety didn't help much I'm sure... Talk about anxiety, I was all prepared to go completely out, but when I got there, I found out that the injection to put me to sleep would have cost an extra 300 bucks!!! So, I chose just to get it pulled, with novacaine and was soooo nervous.. It actually turned out really well, I didn't hardly feel a thing and it came right out... I just have a sore jaw today and my stomach issues, but I'm pretty sure (hopeful anyways) that I didn't start something with my IBD and I'll just get it back under control in a couple of days back on my meds regularly..

Do you think that could cause a bit of a flareup with my symptoms?

What a couple of days.. Whew!

It might have been related to the stress you felt about getting your teeth pulled. I know the stress from that alone would send me straight into a flare up.

Yeah I agree I think it was just the stress. When my anxiety acts up I get alot of D and nausea and if I don't catch it quick enough it will knock me down for a few days. Hope you feel better soon.
