Most times, after moving my bowels I have the constant feeling of still having to go. I do go a lot but it takes many bowel movements until the feeling goes away. It is miserable. I am happiest on days when I don’t go at all!

once you have had a flare do you eat that day or following day and what do you eat ?
I have no diet as I dunno if anything upsets my stomach I can eat the same things and then some days have a flare cant seem to find a pattern :( but never know what to eat after one usually I go with out food for rest day or following day because to scared to eat :(
I aso have just broth, maybe crackers, applesauce for a couple of days after a flare-up. Certainly nothing else. NO milk or dairy.
I was having a very bad Attack this passed Sunday and I am looking for new over the counter Medicine or a new medicine that my doctor can give me any ideas?
