Have you ever used rectal meds?
I always have them on hand, even when I am not flaring, so I can take them at the first sign of a flare. How long do you have UC? With the time, you usually can distinguish between a moody gut, a bug, too much food or a real flare. From my personal experience it gets worse if I wait too long. So just watch out for UC signs like mucus and blood and do try the rectal meds if you hacven't done before. They are difficult to administer first and you have to get used to it and learn it, but it is so worth it. Just a little liquid in your bum can do a whole lot difference at the beginning of a flare and nip it in the bud/butt
Hope you feel better soon and hopefully your gut is just a little grumpy.
