    I have had this new pain now for a couple of days and I can't tell if its a groin pain or Crohn's pain.
   It is like a sharp pain that comes and goes, and is very very low on my abdomen. It almost feels like a pulled groin muscle but I havent been to the gym in 2 days so I'm not sure.
    It is located on my lower right side, but on my pubic area. Its about 3 inches above and 2 inches to the right of my penis. What do you guys think?
   Ever since I was diagnosed I can't stop but think that everything is Crohn's related.........

idboer,

Well, I dont have a penis, but I do have an abdo with crohns! Lets see, if it is a pulled muscle, you should probably feel the area hurt ( i suspect especaially with a sharpish pain) if you intentionally move that area and put it under some mild strain. Try lying down and lifting both legs, one leg at a time into the air off the floor. See what happens in particular when you lift the right leg. When you stand up, try bending over to touch your toes and then straighten up and stretch with your hands in the air and whilst standing on your toes. If you stretch this area and it feels sharp but relaxes when you relax then maybe it is a pulled muscle. You did only go to the gym 2 days ago so it could be it. On the flip side it could be a sign of crohns activity. Go with the muscle for now and see how things progress..I guess you will soon know if its crohns pain.
If the bowel activity hasnt done anything different since the pain developed - hopefully you just need to rest that muscle a bit!

Thanks. I still can't pinpoint it but I'm gonna wait a little and see what happens.
