Sorry to hear Andrina. Unfortunately, we all do flare eventually. I'd just recommend the standard flare protocol: get a stool test for infectious causes, and contact your gasteroenteroligis asap. Best to nip-it-in-the-bud and catch it early, rather than wait until it's a 5-alarm-flare.

UC experience: wakeup with noisy bowels so no lingering in bed, soon after poop with discomfort/pain/mild-nausea, eat something, poop, get dressed, poop, leave in car and worry whole drive about more...
