Horrible gas pain during flare

by Amy
(Ann Arbor, MI)

I've had Crohn's for 21 years, 9 bowel/other resections, many, many flares, but recently, I'm having another flare. My question/problem is, I've been having horrible gas pain on top of the burning/tearing pain. The gas feels as if it just won't move, I'm very bloated and still having bowel movements about 5-12 times a day on Colestid. I haven't been eating dairy out of fear of ending up in the ER and high fiber as been out for years as I have a fat wrapping around my intestines that has caused me multiple bowel obstructions. Does anyone else have this problem during a flare? I've just never had a problem like this with non moving gas.
