I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis just over a year ago after a colonoscopy requested because of rectal bleeding. Everything calmed down and I haven't been bothered since until Monday past when I developed diarrhoea. I thought perhaps it was just a bug and it was only two days in that the penny dropped and I realised it may be a flare up.
I'm in a bit of pain which seems to be in my upper abdomen. There has been no bleeding this time. I feel bloated all of the time and eating has become a nightmare. I've been trying to eat small amounts of bland food, but it immediately causes discomfort and, not too long after, yet another visit to the loo. I am going to the loo upwards of 15 times a day and it now really just looks like bile that is coming out.
Does anyone one have any advice or even reassurance that this is how flare ups can go?
Any comment would be greatly appreciated.
