I'm so bloated cramping like I'm constipated. Does anyone here have bloating with CD or UC? My symptoms are bloated feeling after about 2-3 hours later after I eat. If I burp it seems to help I have not had any diarrhea either. My blood work came back normal WBC was normal. This started out burning in my chest then moved to my stomach its been 10 days not much change no more pain just bloating now. Chest pain still there in the morning not as bad. I had a CT scan last week they said mild UC. Strange thing is I’m not getting the usual symptoms of UC or CD going to the bathroom only once a day not much comes out but i'm not eating much. Lost 10 lbs in 10 days. I'm going for a colonoscopy and EGD Tuesday I’m really nervous they are going to find stomach cancer or something really bad. The symptoms for stomach cancer are bloating and pain. My father had Crohn's so it could be that. I would think the CT scan would have seen a tumor. The pain is all over feels like being constipated that seems to be opposite of symptoms of UC or CD?

I don’t really go on this site as I have UC but today is my day off and I am trying to research about different medicines. Any way I saw your message, I did have bloating with my UC, especially when I had a flare about 3 weeks ago. I also had other symptoms of UC, like diarrhoea, and mucus. So you need to get checked especially if your dad had chrones, its good your going to go for a colonscopy .
Anyway I decided to experiment with a few food ideas., One of the things I have been experimenting with is food combining. I felt as soon as I stopped eating fish and potatoes and things like this together my stomach got better. I bought a book written by Sherry Brescia. She had IBS, which is not as serious as what I have, but her book helped. I will now always eat like she recommends and food combining does really work for bloating and gas. I am so glad I came across it and it does work with UC, if that is what is wrong.
Good luck I hope you don’t have either of these illnesses
