Hey all! Well I have been having quite a bit abdominal pain today, and earlier today I was cramping and had diarriah. The pain is sharp and came on quite suddenly. It is in my upper and lower abdomen, and when it is strong it radiates to the right side of my back. If I press on my lower abdomen the pain shoots up to the center of my stomach. I took 2 percocet, and the pain has gotten better, but I am thinking this is because of the pain pills. If the pain comes back should I go to the ER or urgent care or just wait it out. I hadn't had such intense pain for quite a while until tonight.
Diagnosed: 2003, age 18 (had issues with it since I was 12)
Meds for crohns: Remicade every 6 weeks, 6-mp, Nexium (GERD)
Other medical issues: Hereditary Spherocytosis (hemolytic anemia) iron deficient anemia, polyarthralgia, ovarian cysts, Migraines, GERD

That doesn't sound good. I think that I might head to the er or urgent care. Be careful with the pain meds, while they do help the pain, you don't want them to mask it when it is really bad.
