I have found that for the twenty years ive had Crohn's disease, and three surguries, that this does nothing but add more pain and suffering to me. its bad enough the problems i feel in everyday life' but this is like it swells stuff up in there, its bad enough that air and food doesnt wanna go through, and ur stomach feels like a pinched water hose. the dr's can give us no cure for our diseas, and nor can they help us for a reason, Why dont the invent a pill to help numb our stomach.

Mothernatures monthly extra pain
by: Annette Young

Hello,

Thank you for your post.

I am so sorry to hear that you are suffering so badly. I know Crohn's is a horrible disease and there will be certain times when the pain gets a whole lot worse. Unfortunately, there is not a lot that can be done but to keep the body as relaxed and as stress free as possible and to unfortunately have to learn to live with it.

I speak to many people who suffer greatly with their Crohn's and for them, it seems unbearable at times. Do make sure that you are not inadvertently doing something that can cause a flare-up. Eating or drinking the wrong foods can provoke a trigger. Stress for example can play a huge part in making the whole condition much worse, so relaxation techniques are ideal as they can help to rid the body of tension and to keep the mind feeling peaceful.

Researchers have not yet discovered why hormonal imbalances should cause Crohn's to be more aggressive, but some women have found that by taking two evening primrose supplements each day, this can help. Of course, the good old fashioned hot water bottle can really help to ease any cramps.

I have attached a link to a site with much more information but you may well find it useful

I hope this helps and wish you much luck in the future.

Best wishes,

Annette
