Very interesting question. I have wondered about a seasonal/allergy trigger for my UC.
My first flare started in August, but I wasn't diagnosed until October because I was in total denial and didn't make an appt for about six weeks. Also I seem to get worse in the fall and winter.
edit to add: I forgot to mention that the very first symptoms which I experienced 25 years ago before they disappeared began in September.
UC diagnosed 10/05, first symptoms 1983
asacol 12/daily and rowasa as needed
Trying out Culturelle Probiotic
past rx: colozal, lialda, canasa
i can't complain, but sometimes i still do. lifes been good to me so far. -joe walsh
