Hi guys!
I am almost 20 years old, and like a bunch that i saw here, i am newly diagnosed with mild colitis.
I had the usual (from what i have heard) bloody diarrhea for a bunch of months, but aside from that, not much else. maybe nausea here and there but nothing i felt to be unusual.
I keep seeing people talk about "flare ups" - what exactly is this? what does it mean?
Is the infrequent nausea part of the colitis?

am hoping someone here can help me make sense out of all of this and put some order in my brain...

Thanks :)
