Hi Claytin, welcome to Healingwell :) Are you on any medications at this time? Where are you from? Stress is known to be a trigger in flares so it's not surprising that you were having symptoms. As in drinking more are you referring to alcohol? If so then yes this can aggravate your Uc.

I agree here With Red on this one. Stress will make you flare and increase symptoms. Some say that stress cannot cause flares but i know for a fact that they cause most of mines.Alcohol will also increase symptoms, especially if you are flaring badly.
Good luck
