Yes: If you symptoms are returning as they were before then it is most likely your colitis flaring up again. I would recommend you see your doctor or gastroenteritis sooner rather than later as different kinds of "colitis" can respond to medicines rather than surgery if treated early enough. Stopping drinking is probably unrelated.

If my bloodwork came back that my HLA-DQ2 negative but my HLA-DQ8 was positive, does that mean I can have Colitis. thanks?

Celiac disease: HLA-DQ2 and DQ8 are markers to help in diagnosing celiac disease not colitis. Discuss your results with a GI doctor or your PCP.
