I have a stricture in my terminal ileum. In my case, I feel some pain in the area (lower right abdomen) as ulcers continue to form, and in the past I have had bloating at night and in the morning. Food moves very slowly through a stricture so that can add to obstructions (hence the bloating). I helped combat this problem by not eating much at night before I went to bed.
Current DX: Graves' disease, Crohn's disease, gallstones, scoliosis, syringomyelia
Dear admin: ASP sucks and so does formatting in tables!
