Hi...it could be the amount you're taking...has your UC improved from taking it nightly for the 6 weeks?
You could ask the doc to put you on the 2g dosage nightly and see if that improves your pain symptoms....at least if it does, knowing the limit will be helpful.
The other thing is that it might be the metabisulfite as a preservative....
I think firstly go for the 2g.....
We all reach our limit sometimes.
Curious...how old are you? Are you M or F?
Welcome to the forum!!
