My diarrhea has increased from 4/5 to at least 8/10 times a day. Large amount of bloating, and increase of pain in the lower
left & right quadrant.
Putting myself on semi clear diet, went on a clear fluids 2 weeks ago because of my pancreas. I hate doing it, but it does help.
It's so weird why crohns like to rear up this time of year, but at least I know why I feel so tired. Just need to stay out of hospital!!

Geez I'm sorry to hear that :-( When things get bad for me I do the SCD version of clear liquids -- you basically make homemade chicken broth with salt and spices and it usually helps quiet things down within a couple of days.

+ 34 year old male
+ Crohn's Disease DX in 1997, doc said it was "moderate to severe"
+ Currently taking 9mg entocort and 40mg prozac
+ SCD for past 10 years
+ 4,000 mg MSM, Calcium, Vitamin D, Multivitamin, S. boulardii, Acidophilus
+ Section in lower jejunum is badly strictured (5mm wide opening continues for 10cm!) but otherwise no other problems in bowel
+ No surgeries so far

Good Luck Dunny. Hope you get the flare knocked down quick
I use FD&C Blue dye number 1 and it really seems to help me.  There is SCIENCE behind this.  Just ask me and I will explain it to you.  U/C and Crohn's for 34 years.  Blue dye for one month and I am feeling pretty good!  I am so excited by this but I need others to try it with their doctor's permission.  Simple food coloring!!  BLUE1.  
I can't make money on this, it's already in your kitchen.  I just want to help, especially the youngsters.
I do 2 drops in 6 ounces of water when I get up, 2 or 3 drops in 16 or 20 ounces of water that I sip all day and then 2 drops in 6 ounces of water at bedtime.   Max of 7 drops a day.
