First, thanks to everyone that gave opinions on which to try first to keep from flaring before my vacation. We leave Friday and ...knock on wood, I feel great.
My GI suggested I wait a day or 2 after seeing blood and I'm so glad I did. Turns out I have an intolerance to PPI specifically Prilosec. I've been struggling on and off with excruciating (like a herd of elephants on my chest) heartburn. Each time I tried to add Prilosec I ended up with loose stools and blood.
Prilosec isn't the cause of my uc but it appears to exasperate it. I still have to deal with the heartburn but I can function with that. Sure I'm losing sleep and kinda *****y but I'll take it!
I'm day 5 off of Prilosec and perfect poop!!!
Outer banks, here I come.
