I have to clear up a bit of newbie info sharing thats totally incorrect.
One can flare without bleeding. If one waits till that symptom, important clues of actual flaring will be reasoned away and denied. Treatment won't happen soon enough, and the tolerance level of symptoms will continue to rise.
Inflammation happens in increments.....like a sunburn, just because it is a teeny bit of pale pink, it doesn't mean one hasn't got a sunburn or isn't flaring.
Acute doesn't mean not flaring.......areas not yet flaring long enough to create structural changes doesnt mean it's not UC.
Please stop using the term flu for anything other than respiratory. Gastro bugs or invaders can be caused by virus, bacteria, fungus, parasites, toxins, etc, and isn't under the umbrella term of FLU. It is transferred hand to mouth, ingested......and bacterial and viral are spread via improper handwashing....those who give and receive.
Do more research, try not to base and reuse incorrect info just because of its common usage.
*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.
