I have been in a big flare now for the last 9 weeks. I had to up my 5ASA med to 8 pills daily and nightly Rowasa enemas.
Finally, I am seeing improvement but still some bleeding and my stools are long and thin. Been on a low residue diet. The weird thing is that every night around 3;30am or so my belly starts really gurgling and then passing a lot of gas. Then when I get up first thing in the morning I have a lot of loud gas and move my bowels right away usually. After that I am quiet all day with extremely little gas and no more bowel movements till the cycle starts again. During the day you would think I am almost normal. Never had this happen with any other flares.

Colazol 6 daily with Asacol 2 at night
Rowasa enemas nightly
Megaflora probiotics twice a day
Cod liver oil 2 capsules

Do you squeeze the air out of the Rowasa before you administer them? If not, try that to see if it helps.
