Hi..welcome to the forum...no bother at all to answer a few questions.
It sounds like mucus and/or pus mixed up in the blood.
What medications were you on over the past year?
What medications are you on at this time?
How many times a day are you having bms...is it diarrhea?
Yes, I had losts of ups and downs the first few years with flares and trying to get it all figured out regarding meds..etc.
Hang tough...hopefully, you'll get your answers soon if it's anything over and above the norm of a UC flare.

~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
