Ulcerative Colitis flare from flu shot?

So sorry to hear about your reaction to the flu shot. I had a similar reaction this year. I have Crohn's disease and have avoided flu shots for a long time because of a flare/reaction about ten years ago. This year at my GP's insistence, I got the shot. Within 24 hours, I was a wreck, and still am. But of course the doctor said it couldn't possibly be the flu shot. It must be my imagination !
Hang in there, I hope things turn around for you soon.

I never would have thought to put the two together. It does make sense though, because I have Crohn’s Ilium and after the shot this year it caused me to go out of remission. I’m now dealing with severe diarrhea and going 6-8 times a day.
