OH yea, it's going around here in Oregon too! I was in the hospital for my UC from Nov 1st to the 6th, and was doing better, then out of nowhere, that weekend, I woke up feeling worse! My achiness was worse again, lots of GI rumbling, and total watery diarrhea. But I could tell it was a bit different than my UC flare symptoms...there was no blood or mucous, and none of that severe cramping that feels like your whole body is trying to push everything you own out (gawd, I hate that!!). Plus, I knew that my kids had diarrhea and achiness a few days before that. I tried to stay away, and do good handwashing and all the preventative measures, but I kind of figured it was inevitable. The thing that worried me the most was if it would make my flare return. I was lucky, it only lasted about
24 hours, then I began my improvements again! yay!! So try to hang in there, hopefully it pass shortly!
