I've been trying a digestive enzyme to help with gas/bloating and the general yuck feeling I get my my GERD as well as the UC. I wonder if it would help you?
It's called Digestive Gold by Enzymedica - the makers of the Pro-Bio that many of us have started. You might even try emailing the company and asking for a sample if you want to try it. They've been great to work with :)
Feel better soon! (Glad to see you around!)
