Actually, now that you mention it, it does feel better after eating. Not these past 2 weeks because the pain and bloating has been very bad, but I've been having chronic bloating and gas for over 3 years.
After shaking, I let the Rowasa settle to the bottom and then squeeze out the air. Usually, after I initially apply it, I have to pass gas.
When I mentioned stomach infections, I meant, through the years, if I'd eat something bad. But now, it could well be H pylori as you said. I get these severe stomach cramps too often (every few months) so there may be something wrong. If it is H pylori, won't they put me on antibiotics? I don't handle antibiotics well and the last time I was prescribed some, my UC began to flare.
