I am so sorry. I am bummed out myself. I had a couple raisins and a couple chips yesterday after eating nothing but 5 regular items (salmon, almond butter, ham roll ups ugh) and my stomach started hurting so much. It hurts all under my ribs, as in under the rib cage where I can't rub the pain away. UUGGGH WHY WHY.

For me, it's usually a cocktail. I love a little Jack (Daniels) & Ginger but it sure doesn't love me. Only takes a little. Duh, alcohol on ulcers??!!
OK, I'm a broken record, but could it be the bread/gluten that made you react so strongly to so little a bite??
Anyway, I hope you get past your setback soon.
49 year old female attorney, diagnosed UC/pancolitis 1985, no surgery but much suffering.
Asacol/5ASA 6x400 mg maintenance for 20+ years; use prednisone & Rowasa for flares. 
August 2008 sought care of naturopathic doctor. Food sensitivity test showed gluten, other intolerances; started diet without gluten, soy, dairy, tomato etc. Replete probiotic first, now Forte pills. 
Achieved remission for the first time in many, many years!? Seemed so, but colonoscopy Oct. 6 proved not so, heavy inflammation in ascending colon & will be using Rowasa again. But I AM better.

If you really only had a bite it could just be a coincidence.

I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

I do believe some things are coincidence and some really "bother" us.

As for McD's - when I have to go there or want to go there I have a ranch wrap with ranch.  That seems to agree with me ok!  I am learning what I can eat at certain restaurants and have to stick with one or two items unless I want to "suffer" later.  Flat bread or pita bread is a good choice.

a bite of McDonald's hamburger isn't going to cause bleeding.

You're flaring at this time anyway.

Oddly enough, flaring or no, one of the things I always seem to be able to tolerate is McDs! I have lunch there, typically Fries and a Quarter Pounder w/Cheese most days for lunch. I can seldom eat breakfast, but by lunch am feeling ok. Even with that for lunch I have been steadily losing the weight I gained while on Pred for two years -- as of this morning I am only 4 1/2 lbs away from my goal weight (more than five years ago I achieved "Lifetime" Weight Watchers membership and kept the weight off until I was on Prednisone).

Yeah, it's not the best meal I can have, but it'a one that reliably doesn't make me nauseous. And again, oddly enough, McDonald's french fries are the only fries I can usually tolerate!

I think there used to be something other than hamburger in McD's burgers. When I was in high school any burger would make me instantly ill.... except McDs. I think there must be soy or something in there.

Burger King makes my husband very sick due to the char-broiled meat or ?  He gets sick to his stomach.  McD's is no problem for him.  ElaineNY

Ditto here on being able to tolerate mcdonalds. Lately any food I eat is hurting me regardless of what it is, but typically McDonald's is the only fast food I can eat and not get sick from it. I usually just eat one or two of their regular hamburgers and they're just fine. I did here once that their burgers are mostly soy but never found anything official to back that up. I also like that Bacon Ranch chicken sandwich... mmm.

I've been addicted to that monopoly game lately, haha. My stomach hates me for it, but I'm hoping to win big! rolleyes Hey at least it's not as much of a waste as lotto/scratch off tickets.. At least with this I still get food out of it even if I lose.

I had McD's for lunch yesterday and I totally felt it this morning; it was horrible. I had a chicken sandwich, but when I have the same thing from Wendy's, I'm completely fine. However, I can tolerate a grilled chicken wrap from McD's.

a little bite of food isnt going to send you into a flare. like quincy said... you're already flaring.

this is an auto-immune disease.... food does not cause ulcers or UC to flare. when you eat food, it goes to the stomach. and if you have a stomach ache from it right away, its not UC. UC is ONLY in the colon. not the tummy.
and hours later, when it hits the small intestine, if you have pain there, then its also not UC.

the colon hurts when the food hits the colon and by then, its not what the food is anymore that matters, its how hard or soft it is or maybe even spicy or bulky (or pointy as it sometimes feels).

if you had that bad of a reaction, then it has to be from something that you ate hours prior or the day before. it is not medically possible for food to get to the colon in less than quite some hours. transit time to the colon is about 6 hours. once in the colon it can take up to 48 hours to move through. but with UC, that time is quite quicker. but until it gets to the colon, its not UC thats affected.
steph - 32 - female - gold coast australia - UC since 2000
severe UC in descending colon and sigmoid colon ONLY
mesalazine granules 3g x1 a day (much nicer than a million tablets a day)
prednisolone 25mg x1 a day (ick ick and did i say ick?)
enteric coated fish oil -omega 3 (so they get all the way to my colon)
vitamin D3 x1 a day
tumeric capsules - if i remember to take the bloody things.
i still eat what i want, when i want, if i feel like eating at all :(

Ok, a little help here.  I realized all that about stomach ache, etc.

So, if I am taking my Lialda with breakfast and getting sick about 3 a.m. - do you think if I took it with lunch or even dinner it would make me sick a different time?  I have a feeling it either is dissolving too soon (in my stomach and not my colon) or I am just plain sensitive to it.
