Just wondering after reading about the nasal sores, if you can share what symptom (aside from the obvious D and/or vomiting)
comes right before a flare?
For me, and this happens every time, is I get what I call the speckles. It is most pronounced on my chest and back but they are all over. Not very itchy, they look like chicken pox. Every doctor I've ever told about the speckles (except one) has looked at me like I'm on crack. lol.. but it's true.
Also, about half the time before a flare (usually the BAD flares) I get mouth and throat ulcers to the point where it hurts so bad to swallow, that totally sucks.
