I tend to eat around meal time whether I'm hungry or not. Lately when eating or right after I'm done I experience severe hunger pains that last approx 20 mins. Does this happen to anyone else? I eat fair size meals and def couldn't contine eating after these hunger pains start.

Are you on prednisone? That could be a reason for this.

I am on humira once every 2 weeks. I have noticed that I am feeling hungry more than I was before I went on it. Not Pred hungry, just more like a "munchie" feeling. I will eat a normal dinner, than 1/2 hour later, I will want a popsicle, or want a bowl of cereal before bed. I'm not liking it too much cuz I'm still trying to lose the Pred weight from before.

The best thing I have found is that I am trying not to eat "just cuz it's that time". It's hard because I have a family that I cook dinner for, but I'm trying not to eat if I'm not hungry at that time. Try to eat a smaller portion at dinner since you know you will have those feelings a little later.


Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.

Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

Wow, this has been going on with me since I was diagnosed two years ago. It doesn't  have anything to do with the Humira or prednisone, I'm not on either and it's been happening for years. I'm not sure what it is, but it's annoying. I tell my husband I'm hungry again 30 mins after I eat and he rolls his eyes. Even if I'm extremely hungry I can't eat a lot of food. No matter how much I eat I'm hungry a half hour later.
Pentasa- 1000mg/2x 1/08; Percocet

Currently on a Low-residue diet as of 11/26

I'm so tired, when will this get better?

hunger pain is the pain that you feel when you have not eaten, usually it is just a feeling of discomfort, but it can bend ya over/ wake you up
It is the muscle contractions of your stomach after it has emptied. There are many different reasons for it, but it should take hours for this to occur after eatting/drinking, but when it happens as quickly as a 30 mins, common sense says there is something going on. I have to admit I cannot eat large amounts at once, so I kinda graze, but this is the only way I can keep my stomach from being painful.
