it all started 2 days ago. sick like i ate something bad (think it was the fried chicken that got me). i get the sudden urge to have a bm every 20mins or so, its only like a tablespoon or so and i kind of feel backed up. this lasts all throughout the night.... im not bloated, and every so often i have a bm with some volume to it so i dont think im swollen shut. who knows tho.

yesterday, everything calms down a lot until 1/2 way through the day. the sudden urge has calmed down but i have a crippling pain when ever im not in a fetal position. its pretty bad and runs hip to hip below my belly button. also my stools are like dirt and its yellow when i wipe. sorry but my new ins has not kicked in yet so you guys are all i have.

any ideas or has anyone ever felt like this? is this just normal for crohns?

Get checked for C-diff.  I had similar problems, got tested and bam...I had it.  Usually it can be fixed with oral antibiotics, but mine was so severe they admitted me to the hospital for 4 days for IV pain killers and antibiotics.

Well I would tell you if I ate fried chicken I would be feeling pretty poorly too. I would try to avoid the fried foods, they cause most Crohnies problems. My suggestion since you don't have insurance is to go on a liquid diet for a few days until things quiet down. Get some ensure or Boost like drinks to supplement foods, and maybe some Pedialyte to keep yourself hydrated. Chicken broth helps alot too. Sending healing thoughts your way.

lets say its the chicken. how long would 3 pcs put you out of order nanners? i diddnt eat at all yesterday and started feeling pretty good. i had a egg and pancake for dinner and now im wrecked again. i need to accept this and stop punishing myself. its still just so new to me. the pred had me feeling like a million bucks, needless to say i "forgot" i needed a crohn's diet still.

If a food is going to make me sick it will tear me up for 2-3 days usually. I know on Pred you want to eat everything thats not nailed down, but you still have to remember the stupid CD. Try to slow your way back up to more solid foods and see if that helps. Good luck!
