Either I ate too much of what I "shouldn't" or something is flaring up.

Last night, I ate a big amount of green bean casserole. My utmost favorite meal. It's rarity I get it, guess that's why I love it. I mixed it with my milk since I'm lactose intolerant. I considered that to be my dinner, then I went to school. It didn't hit me until about 11 o'clock last night when I had to run to the bathroom. My insides haven't felt the same since last night. I barely ate anything today, and manged fine at work. I ate dinner tonight which was a way better meal than last night, and my insides still feel crummy. Guess you pay for some decisions you make. Too much of one thing really isn't a good thing. Oops!

We're only human! My "mistakes" usually involve too much good mexican food.
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 wheat/gluten, other intolerances; eliminated all wheat/gluten from my diet. Probiotics (Ultimate Flora, 50 billion). 
Flaring, seasonal? Back on prednisone, tried to taper but now back up to 30 after several really bad days. Humira denied, waiting for approval to start Remicade.

If you're flaring, you're'll find out soon enough.

As far as the beans and milk...could have been too much for your system.

It wouldn't be out in 6 hours, however the increase of that much fibre and you being lactose intolerant would get things moving a bit quicker possibly and triggered whatever was in your colon.

It's still probably "processing"....that much fibre with milk would give me discomfort...for a day or more until it's all out.

You should eat something, tho.
