Does anyone experience flare ups right before or during their period?
if so what do you or did you do to find relief?
It's getting so bad i am having to leave work or not go in at all every month, a week before my period starts because of the pain, urgency and diarrhea.
thank you for any help!!

Hi, I have this as well. My Gastro and Gynecologist suggested that I go on the pill and skip the placebo each month therefore skipping my period. It has worked wonders and I have been able to avoid flares. 2-3 times per year I will have breakthrough bleeding and have to get my period, but the flares are much less now than they were and at least it isn't every month.
