Changes in symptoms

I was diagnosed with UC about 5 years ago. Since then, I have been on 800mg of Asacol a/day. I rarely have symptoms and am pretty much aware of what I can and cannot eat. One day about 5 weeks ago, my bowel habits started to change. I haven't lost much weight due to frequent loose stool and sometimes it I even have (very minor) incontinence. Unfortunately, I had to take Clindamycin for a tooth extraction and that messed me up even more. I felt fine for about 2 days after stopping it and now I have green diarrhea. My stomach is gurgling constantly and I always have a pressure and horrible gas. The stool is grainy as well. It doesn't matter what I eat either, nothing helps. Other things that may help-I still have my gallbladder and am also lactose intolerant.

I have an appointment with my specialist on June 22-nothing earlier unfortunately. Any idea what this could be?

Could just be irritation from the antibiotic. Try to eat bland foods and drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated and hopefully you'll be back on track within a week or so.
