Sometimes when i get pain to where it's bad.. I may get a little nauseated. But never have thrown up.

Today, and yesterday night i was feeling weird types of tightning type pain around the belly button and sides.
No vomiting or fever. No distention or pain when i apply pressure to the area. Thing is the pain is felt around the back, sides and middle almost to where the sensation is odd in the belly button.. hard to explain. Pain always has came in waves so its hard to explain. than goes away.

I DO have bowel sounds, I still use the bathroom 3-4 times a day, But i am also on narcotics which can be building up a lot of gas?

How do i know if i have partial or obstructions? I just don't? or can i do something at home to see...

I may be eating foods causing it.. Bologna, cheese, mayo..?

If you can ask me a few questions to help me determine my issue.. i'd appreciate it.
i see my doc may 10th for methotrexate review.

p.s I did take an iron suppliment today.. maybe that contributed.

Not that i dont love hearing from EVERYONE.. I just know top of head that Gail and Navy have specific experience in this topic.

thanks all!!

Fat in your diet (it depends on what kind) can contribute to pain, because it will slow down your gut. Plus you got alot of greasy food there, which can contribute to d. Ca and Fe can also contribute to it. But I also wonder if your injection site might be causing some issues. So depending on how hard it feels you might think about using a heat pad on it, and a refridgerated (not frozen) cold pack, whatever works better. I would also say that back pain is some what normal with this disease (due to the inflamation process) especially given that it is coming in waves (so you want to do something that will calm the spasm down/heat usually does help), however if it is getting bad enought to go to the er, please do go to the ER!

pain is gone now.. its weird..
so how do i know if i am obstructing.. thats the thing...

if i ONLY drink ensure tomorrow for example.. and i have this problem.. its prolly gas..

Oh.. And my heart startin to flutter or PVC, again.. which is harmless but its always when gas is moving or a lot of gas.

This is #1 reason why i think i got a lot of build up.

Those are actually really decent stool colors. You get rid of gas by walking!
I would suggest stop eatting crummie foods, like bologne, mayo, etc
You might try some chicken or turkey breast instead, and you might want to think about taking a walk if you can.

I know you didn't ask me, but I would really stop the bologna. I would tell someone that whether they had CD or not. I don't even consider that food...

I agree the bologna has alot of preservatives etc in it and can really upset your stomach. You can have spasms in your intestinal tract because of foods like that too. Foods with alot of preservatives always gives me cramps and diarrhea. Its actually IBS affecting me from foods like that not Crohns.

With an obstruction you will get REALLY bloated and a hard tummy, you cannot move air or stool out of either direction, you have pain centered around the belly button that comes in waves much like a woman in labor would have. The pain is so bad, you have to go to the ER. Eventually you may even start throwing up bile.

I really think alot of your tummy problems right now is because of your diet. I follow a low residue diet all the time, and if your doctor is thinking you have a stricture this might be a better diet to follow as it is easy to chew and easy to digest. I do not eat red meat at all, as it is extremely hard even for a healthy digestive tract to digest. I eat alot of chicken, fish and turkey. Hope that helps. Good luck!

Well the mayo doesn't bother me, and i eat all natural with omega 3s and 6s in it. it's not bad.

I do like bagels and cream cheese. We'll see if i still get bothersome with that.

taking out the bologna and american for now.

Honestly I think those have preservatives too. I know they infuse them with water, salt and all kinds of other stuff I can't pronouce or spell:).
