2 weeks into being diagnosed with UC
I am early into this, I was diagnosed on the 21st started taking Asacol HD the next day. I had a bad flare which is what prompted the GI visit. My fever got to 104 and I could not stop the diarrhea for 4 days.
Right before that I had pains/a numb feeling in my lower back to lower stomach. I am experiencing that same feeling now, but not everyday. Can you have a bad flare on asacol?
I have not had the diarrhea since the flare, but I do have Type 5 stool on bad days. Is this normal, does a flare always need to have diarrhea?
