It started suddenly this afternoon - sharp stabbing pain in my right lower abdomen and I cannot eat anything without crying and curling up in a fetal position.  I have been feeling badly this week because of back pain (sacroiliitis) and headaches and my husband has been working overtime all week so we have been eating fast food for a few days instead of me cooking dinner. I am wondering if it could be because of all of the fast food we have had the past few days, or stress (which has definitely been bad). Is there anything I can do at home besides a liquid diet?  I would do anything to stop this right now!!! This is how it all started when I first had symptoms of Crohn's and had my first hospitalization.  I do not want to go to the hospital! sad

I have to be really careful with fast food as it doesn't agree with me either. So it could be that that has upset your system. If the pain continues to be bad or even gets worse, get your butt to the ER. But... I would recommend going on a very light diet for a few and see if that helps. Hugs!

I am not sure if you do this or not and whether you have permission from your GI or not, in my case, I always need to bump up pred dosage, every time I taper down to 5 mg or below I flare, it is a constant battle and one which I lose. That is a tactic to use. But, I always manage to control the flare. ER's are hell-hole and I hate them, because they test for every darn thing before the let you go. But, if you are vomiting and and not able to keep anything down, you must go to the ER.

Thanks you guys.  I have been trying just soup but that is not working.  I am getting worse.  This morning I was ok until I drank a mug of soup.  20 minutes later my intestines felt like they were on FIRE!!!!  I guess I will call the GI.  Maybe I won't get voicemail mad

Iram, my GI did the same thing.  Now I have to up my prednisone to 40 mg a day until I see him next week.  Will I ever be off steroids???
