I’m in a flare

I’m in a flare and have blood in my stool. I don’t have diarrhea but my stools are thin. My stomach is so bloated. I have been drinking a lot of water and taking mesalamine enemas because my lower abdomen is swollen. I notice when I eat grains I get more constipated. I do eat healthy for the most part. I’m going on prednisone to calm the inflammation. My lower intestine does have a lil diverticula. It also bothers my bladder and upper abdomen. I been feeling nauseated and my back has been sore with a burning sensation and stinging in the back. I been eating soups and fruits, rice and I’m going to start smoothies tomorrow.. Any tips on constipation with ulcerative colitis and things you eat?
