sad  Having a few bad days with the pain bloating gas and nausea. Sometimes I feel like II'm just going to bust open form the bloating. Sometimes it feels like things are getting bad again. I'm currently not on any meds like you are because I've no diagnosis yet but I do take either Aleve Tylenol or Advil for the pain. This helps sometimes but not all the time.I can't take anything stronger like codiene morphine or demerol.Allergic to the good stuff.
P.S> Thaknkyou for your support. It makes me feel better that I'm not alone and that I can talk to others who understand. This is an awesome website.

First off Ibruprofen and Aleve are big no no's for us Crohnies. Taking them led to one of my worst flares ever. Tylenol is allowed, but not Aspirin, Aleve, or Ibrupofen. They can cause bleeding and flares. Maybe that is what is causing your problems. Just a thought.

Thanks for the advice. I will stop taking the aleve and advil and just stick to tylenol. I'm not sure if I can take vicodine or not. I found out that when I was in the hospital they gave me percicete(not sure if spelled correctly).

I'm sorry you're having to deal with that..I know that rocking back and forth helps trapped gas pass more easily so you might try it for a few minutes when things are particularly bad.
I hope you find something to help alleviate the pain though. It really is just terrible to have to deal with those symptoms sometimes!
