Pain with Crohns?

by Brooke
(Auburn, AL)

I was diagnosed almost 4 years ago with Crohns. I just recently started having sharp pains that come and go in the same area of my stomach where all this started when I was diagnosed. Could this be my crohns flaring up?

Just not sure because the pain does come and go but if I remember correctly the pain was like that back when.

Pain with Crohns? NEW

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that you are getting pains again, you are right in that Crohn's symptoms do seem to come and go and sometimes without reason.

It could be that you have done something that will trigger off an attack even if you are not aware of it. Have you changed your diet at all recently? Tried something that you haven't had for some time perhaps? It makes sense that food is one of the first areas to look at because your digestive system has to break the food down and absorb those nutrients and if there is anything within the food that your system find hard to digests, well, there's your flare-up.

Other triggers include smoking and alcohol and probably not surprisingly, stress. I would suggest you think about the environmental conditions at that time, were you stressed at work? Did you have family problems? anything that can make you worried can trigger off some sort of reaction. If you had a cigarette or alcohol, these can really give you an adverse reaction.

As I said before sometimes there also seems to be no reason for it, but I would certainly keep an eye on your health to monitor changes and if the symptoms get worse or do not seem to alleviate, then I would suggest you go back to the hospital to ask for further checks. Just in case something is occurring inside.

I hope this helps?

Do let us know how you get on.

Best wishes,
Annette
