Drinking hurts my stomach but I can't help to have one or two... Does it bother you too? Are there certain drinks that are better than others?

Sometimes I can have one drink and have a huge stomach ache and then another time I could have one or two and be completely fine! It's hard not to drink sometimes when you're only 23... :-/

I find that a glass or two of red wine actually helps my stomach pain. Crohn's is currently active in my small intestine only (my colon looks great as of a recent colonoscopy) so keep that in mind, everyone's different. But for me red wine always helps the pain in that area.

I haven't found a drink yet that doesn't bother me. I'm not a huge drinker either but
when I do I know I am going to pay for it most likely.

I'm a true Crohnie with IBS and Arthrities too. I have Crohn's very mild compared to a lot of Crohn's people.
Meds I have tried:  Too many to list- LOL
Meds currently on:  Tramadol for the pain

Oddly, when I am really nauseous...one glass of red wine actually settles my stomach. :)
