To me, it sounds like you're flaring again after getting off of the pred. Diarrhea is a UC flare symptom (or c diff symptom). Nausea is also a UC flare symptom. Are you seeing any blood?
I've read posters who have had confirmed adrenal issues after pred and what's more typical is a lot of fatigue and bodywide aches and pains. The adrenals naturally produce cortisol which regulates sleep and wakeup cycles, it also is a mild, natural pain-reliever. Without any cortisol (adrenal fatigue), it just messes with those things. As always see what your cortisol test says. I'd wager it's not that.
Do you get any bloodwork? What's your WBC is it high (typical for a flare)? Do you get CRP blood tests or fecal calprotectin stool tests to monitor your inflammation levels? And if so are they elevated (flare sign)?
