I've had the vomitting/diarrhea twice in my lifetime and hope to never have it again..horrific!!! I don't remember if I was flaring at the time, but I did up the rectal meds anyway.
The suggestion of probiotics should be a huge consideration...not in yogurt form but in pill form....especially since many with inflamed guts can be very lactose intolerant. For me, yogurt gives me much discomfort compared to milk..so it's not something I eat often.
Hope you feel better soon Lori...you've been through a lot.
Do call the doc and consider rectal meds as OH suggested.
Keep us posted.
