I started feeling bad about a week ago. Had nausea, headaches, and then phlebitis. For those that don't know what it is; it's the swelling of the veins. I have it in my ankle and lower leg. This is the second time I've had it. The first time was in my arm 4-5 years ago. I'm thankful that's it's not blood clots (yet). I started on Plavix (blood thinner) today which scares me because I don't want to go into a flare over this. In addition to the pain in my ankle and leg, I have been having terrible migraine headaches.
 
Anyone else with UC had this before???
