call your Doc and tell them how much blood you are losing and that you need to come in asap.
before my dx, I was told it was from eating Wow chips (remember that whole Olestra thing...) anyhow, my Mom had UC so I just knew that's what I had.
I kept on getting sicker and sicker just like you. Then I was losing toilet bowls full of blood and when they told me I had to wait 3 mos to see a GI, I was like, listen I am losing toilet bowls full of blood I don't know if I will be alive in 3 months, they got me in the next morning.
I was just like you, I was so tired I could barely do anything due to blood loss and being in a full on flare.
Then they put me on rowasa enemas and sulfasalazine and in a few days I started to get better.
Hope you are dx'd soon and able to start treatment.
My advice, research your dx, be strong, take your meds unless they make you sick and always call your GI if you feel you are going into a flare.
