Yesterday I felt awful. Just very tired, and my stomach (both upper and lower) wasn't feeling the best. I ate something terrible the night before (Jack in the box tacos, so yummy, yet so evil on my stomach). So I figured that's what I could contribute it to, and consider it punishment for having something like that to eat!
However I woke up at 2 am with this awful pain in my upper right hand side of my abdomen. Now I do NOT have my gallbladder, so we know that's not it! I took an acid reducer pill, and put a heating pad on my stomach for 2 hours before I finally went back to bed (where either the pain stopped or I just passed back out).
Today I still am having some small pains there. I've gone to the bathroom more then a few times over the last 2 days. Not D though, it's been normal, except for some pain. So this isn't like my typical Crohn's attacks where I cramp up and have D for hours on end.
My DH had an ultrasound once for pain in that area and it just showed gas in his colon that wraps around that area. Maybe that's it? I don't know what could be causing pain there since I have no gallbladder! :(
Diagnosed with mild Crohn's Disease 2/06 after sever GI bleed. Has been suffering since 1998. History of rectal fistula and gallbladder removal. Currently taking Asacol and Questran.
