Your doc hasn't given you any antispasmodics?
I'm not sure how to dilute the peppermint, but I do know tea can work wonders.  Fresh mint tea and also fennel tea help me a great deal with pain and gas.  I once posted on here about what various teas do, I dug it up, here it is:

  • Chamomile (soothes the nerves)
  • Fennel (calms muscles, improves digestion, helps flatulance)
  • Mint (eases GI trouble, relaxant)
  • Lemon Grass (antispasmodic, anti-irritant)
  • Ginger (eases cramping & nausea)
  • Green (promotes digestion, overall health)

    Peppermint I hear is primarily for relieving gas.  I can't say how to dilute it though... Hopefully someone will come along who knows.  If not, try Googling it (I tried but didn't find anything good).

    My doctor has me on CHLORD/CLIDI 5-2.5 4 times a day, and since the flare put me on HYOSCYAMINE 0.125 a tablet I use every 4 hrs for discomfort, It desolves on my tongue. But these thing are not working like I hoped. Still having cramping. I am now on a liquid diet  as of yesterday and drinking Magnesium Citrate one bottle yesterday and one today, getting me going but still hurting. Thanks about the teas, I will try them.

Can it get anyworse If Chrons was not bad enough now I have IBS also............Having more troule with the IBS lately. Chrons seems to be in remission, so far........
