Are you all talking about having Crohns in the colon, or have any of you got the left sided pain while diagnosed with Crohns in the small intestines?
I have actually got the same problem as you, the pain that I used to have was in my left side,
and actually in the left waist line, but I also had pain like a bit more to the right but on the upper left side of the navel. My GI has told me that I have the inflammation down in the right side,
near the appendix, (terminal ileum). I can't understand why I never have had pain there. It has always been in the left and upper quadrant, and as one of you said, also in the waist line. Right below the left ribs.
