My symptoms (severe lower abdominal pain, D, bloody bms, and general malaise) had diminished considerably until a couple of days ago. Here on the Shore we were in the 5th day of a heat wave. I was out running arrands and got very hot. As soon as I got home I experienced sudden, sharp pains in my abdomen and began having bloody watery stools. Since then (2 days) I am feeling worse by he day. I have had serious flares before and I know that this is one.
My question: Could the stress of all that heat have triggered this flare? I've never had one start so suddenly before.
