Jen, I haven't had that happen, but hopefully someone might have some answers for you as to why you get this during a flare. I know that lupus can cause GI problems. It sounds like it would be worth asking your doctor about
this and see what he/she thinks.
Are you flaring now? If you are, I really hope you get some relief soon.
