Im the guy who started a low carb diet (makers) and felt the best he ever did....Until I wound up as an inpatient in my local hospital for 3 days.
CT showed a possible abcess? and mild terminal illeuitis
I was treated with antibiotics and PRED and sent home feeling fine.
 
2 days later on Flagyl 1500 and Cipro 1000 I went back to the ER with the worst pain I ever felt in my life from my anus to my belly button.
CT showed improvement of the illetis and no abcess.
They sent me home from the ER with Lortab10 and continue Antibiotics.
 
 
Here I am on the 8th day with a good looking T illieum, a bunch of pain meds and feeling tons of pain in the lower abdomen!! I have never had pain on both sides with CD. I also have cramping that makes me hit the floor!!!! I feel like im gonna croak!
 
Could this be a kidney stone?

You are having flank pain? Any problems when you urinate? Did the CT scans mention anything about your kidneys?

When you say "flank" are you referring to the sides of your back?

I have that pain!!! I'm sorry I am no help to explain to you why other than I aswell have it. My GI wasn't sure but says that it does happen with certain people. That everyone feels their pain in different places and carries it differently.

Well looks like Im headed back!!! 24hr after my last antibiotic Im still bloated and have pain in all quadrants and sharp pain in my umbilical area.

I cant work, live, etc on lartab10's every 3 hours.

What else could this be? Im having small loose greenish BM's 2-3x a day. If feels like gas at first.
Anyone had anyother type of diagnostic test done on their abdomen? Ultrasound or such?
