I was diagnosed with UC in Jan. 2007 after a flare that involved mucus and urgency (no real diarrhea or visible blood), and since then I've been taking 2400 mg. Asacol (sometimes not with great consistency) and have been flare-free.
I went on a course of Augmentin a little over two weeks ago to deal with an upper respiratory thing, and for the past week I've had loose, somewhat mucousy stools. I probably go 5 times a day, with no real false urgency in between. The stools are brown and pretty much odorless.
Is there any possibility that this is c. diff, or maybe the beginning of a flare? Or could it still be just standard antibiotic-induced diarrhea, even though I finished the Augmentin 9 days ago? I should note, in case it matters to anyone, that I'm 32 weeks pregnant. I'm going to the GI doc tomorrow, but just wanted to see if anyone has insight.
