I’m a little embarrassed about this. It seems that recently, I am constantly going to the bathroom. Regardless what I have to eat, the next day, I’m afraid to leave the house for fear of needing a toilet, immediately. No blood in my stool, and no D, just stomach cramps than running to use the bathroom. Fortunately, this only lasts a few hours; however, I feel like a prisoner in my own home and I’m always fearful to venture out. After these episodes, my body feels so drained and listless, I usually lay down and sleep for a few hours.

 

There have bee no major changes in my diet and family life is good.

 

Has anyone else experienced anything similar to this? What’s causing this? It’s getting so I’m afraid to eat because I know what is coming later.

It's the nature of the beast, I strongly believe that IBD has a mind of it's own more then what we give it credit for....people often religiously take their meds, watch their diet and BAM out of nowhere they have an attack....just keep doing what you've been doing so long as you're eating healthy (avoiding processed foods, fast-foods, caffeine, animal fat, processed sugar) and taking a good probiotic, these things alone can be very beneficial.

feel better soon!

Thanks PB4 -what is a good probiotic? I've been researching probiotics for some time and it is confusing. I also hear much about yogurt with active cultures ... any thoughts on this?

I use Primadophilus Reuteri made by natures way, it has guaranteed intestinal release, DOES NOT contain a bunch of un-necssary preservatives/additives/sugars/artificial sweetners, ect....is beneficial for aiding with lactose intolerance and high cholesterol (for women, vaginal health) but of course anyone can use it...it's affordable, in Canada I pay 29.00 for 90 caps and only 1/day is needed...it contains 5 billion CFU which is accomidating for IBD and IBS.

The only downfall is it must be kept in the fridge, so if you decide to buy it, make sure the store keeps it in their fridge or if you order it to your house make sure they will ship it cold-packed.

Are you on any meds right now and are you under a doctors care? Maybe it's time to have some tests done to see what's going on with your CD. Sounds like a flare, something you should talk to your doc about.
