I am very bloated with my crohn's flare. I had a CT scan with contrast that showed no obstruction but inflammation in my terminal ileum and a sigmoid scope showed 2 ulcers in my rectum. I also have a RV fistula. I have never been swollen like this all over my stomach up to my breast bone. I feel like I did when I was pregnant. I also hurt right above my rib cage above stomach but they want do a upper GI because they said even if it is crohns there of an ulcer I am being treated and just increased my Prevacid to bid. Don't understand... I have not had D since Sat but I also stopped eating after Mon until today. I thought that might be the reason but Sun I was swollen too just not this bad. Thanks for any suggestions.
