Sometimes my intestines get sore...especially during a flare, but at other times too. I don't know exactly what it means, but I always assumed that it had to do with inflammation. I also think that sometimes certain foods (the ones with roughage) "scrape" against
open wounds in the tract, which can cause pain. This happens to me, anyway, even if my doctor says that diet doesn't affect Crohn's...(I guess I believe that my diet doesn't cause flares, but can make already existing flares more painful).
I don't know if that's helpful at all, but that has been my experience!
