if eat something that bothers me should i feel it a short time after i have it or the next time i have a bm? i only go one or two times in the morn since i started the pred and it can be pretty intense. in your opinion is this because its all the food from the day coming out at the same time or do you think i ate something that dislikes me? you always help so i figured i would just ask directly. thanks for your thoughts in advance. also flairs should be comparable to how i felt before starting meds right? im just tryying to get a idea of what my body is trying to tell me.

Sometimes foods will affect me within 1-2 hours of consuming it, but other times its the next day or two. I think it depends on what it is. For example, I cheat once in awhile and have some marinera sauce and I will generally feel it within a hour or two. But recently I ate a beef hotdog (I no longer eat red meat) and I felt bad for about 2 days afterwards (not the day I ate it though). I would suggest you keep a food diary and keep notes on how foods effect you, and avoid those that cause problems. Within time you will learn what you can and cannot eat. Its pretty individual for most of us.

Flares yes should be somewhat comparable to how you felt before meds. When I have been in remission and things start acting up, I usually allow myself at least one week and if things don't get better then I know its time for stronger meds and that it is a Crohns flare and not just a few bad days. You will have bad days every once in awhile that really aren't flares per say, but usually the result of an increase of stress or bad foods.

Alot of people don't realize either that anxiety can develop because of Crohns. You start worrying about all the what if's that can happen with this darn disease etc and this anxiety can cause gastric issues such as diarrhea or nausea. I just discovered this about 2 years ago, and now have Xanax (lowest dose) available when those times hits and I am able to stop it right away with the help of this med. I haven't had one of those bad 3-5 days in bed times since I have recognized the anxiety. JMHO

Hope that helps.

i diddnt do anything fancy yesterday ate light for the most part. i did have 2 cookies and a few twizlers but i dont think that would kill me. today im feeling pretty messed up even after the 30mgs of pred. its hard for me to tell if im just having one of those days or if i ate something funky. i know i will figure it all out over time....

i dont even stress over the complications with being a crohnie. im not there and might not ever be there so ill just cope if/when something happens.

im a %100 believer that diet is the most important thing with crohn's. i just want to find out mine as fast as possible. the fact that im starting from scratch erks me beyond belief. at this point i have nothing to compare anything to ya know!

We never eat cookies 'cause cookies have yeast
And yeast you all know turns a man to a beast
Can you ever imagine the utter disgrace
Of a man in the gutter with crumbs on his face?
