Ulcerative colitis flare up or flu?
I was diagnosed with UC about 4 months ago. I've been taking 6 Asacol twice daily and this medication has given me my life back. I suddely developed diarrhea (no blood or mucous) over the past 24 hours. I also had a headache for over a day. (I get migraines also) I guess I'm trying to figure out if this is just the flu or is it a flare up of the colitis. I'm really concerned that the pills which I consider to be a life saver, stopped working. Can anyone with UC tell me about their flare up symptonms? Maybe I'm being overly concerned and just had the flu. I still had diah today. Thanksk for replying.
