I hope some of you can give me so advice. Since I have been diagnosed with Crohn's I hae good spells and I have bad speels jus tlike everyone else. My question is, When I'm starting a bad spell it seems that Im realtivly okay unitl I eat someting. No cramps or gas or nausea but after I eat it is alomost an immedeate flip and I feel that way for three hours or so then starting feeling better, then of coaurse few hous later antoher meal and it starts over again. Anyone have similar issue?

I am like that now but it was not like that before my surgeries. I use to have more C issues than D. I find I feel better later at night it seems to finally calm down then.

It's not uncommon to have this kind of discomfort due to narrowing of the intestines by inflammation or scarring, for example. That's one reason many crohnies lose weight--because it hurts too much to eat. Smaller frequent meals can help with this sometimes.
