Hi CStan and welcome to Healing Well. I am so glad you found us, but hate to hear you are having such a terrible time.
I too have crohns and understand many of your issues. Unless I totally missed it and its possible, did you list what meds you are taking?
It sounds like you are having alot of cramping going on, but I am guessing on that. I tale a medication called Bentyl for cramping and it really helps, but your dr must write a script for it. Ginger Ale is good for an upset stomach and I know alot of people use a heating pad on their tummmy's.
As PaLady pointed out we have a crohns forum here that is just awesome. When I was first dx'd I found this place by accident. I learned so much from that group over there.
Please keep us posted on how you are doing.
