Welcome back, but sorry to hear about the episode of blood. Was it only once? If so, I would not panic about a flare as well can have bad days. Flares are a consistent worsening of our symptoms, I call my doctor whenever I have a pattern of 4-5 days or a week of worse symptoms.
Generally a do no harm thing, to up your medications temporarily just to be safe.
> how long does a higher dose start to help the inflammation?
Sometimes within a few days, other times within a few weeks time. Depends on the severity and extent of inflammation.
