Hello everyone! Well here is the deal. I woke up this morning feeling fine, but tired which is to be expected since I am so anemic. So I went to my 12:00 class, and was feeling ok, then literally was hit with all of a sudden nausea, stomach pain an urgency. Holy moses it was uncomfortable. Of course in my class we were covering a potentially offensive topic so when I left it probably looked like I was offended. I went to the bathroom, and my stomach was cramping severely and I just felt like crap. Then the huge cramps, backflip of the stomach and huge loud sounds from my gut. What is the deal? I thought I was getting better than BAM I feel this yet again. Does anyone else get this, and if so what helps?

This happened to me the other day at work. I work at a bridal store so here I was with trying to get this girl in a wedding dress and it hit me. Like you said, really nauseous stomach cramping...all that good stuff and it came out of NOWHERE!!! I had to excuse myself to the restroom, I know my customer thought I was being rude but I HAD to go! I haven't had it happen since then and I still can't figure out what triggered. I thought it may have been something I ate but I don't remember eating anything at of the who knows?

Always happens just that same way with me. Very inconsistent and very annoying. I can't imagine there's much you can do for those "out of the blue" flares/spells.
Diagnosed in October, 2003 at age 31.
Currently taking Colazal, Nexium, One-A-Day multivitamin
Secondary conditions: mouth ulcers, joint pain, extreme fatigue

me too,

This is almost a daily event for me. I was forced to end my carrer because I did not know from one hour to the next if I was going to have an episode like you decribed. I take this roller coaster ride all the time, I have made it a point not to get to far from a restroom. I have had countless outings/events that I had to suddenly leave when this happens. I feel like I have no control over the body I am forced into living with. Lots of times others just don't know how bad I feel, it's horrible, for me food is the enemy, I have had to fast if I am not at home or near a restroom. It is real frustrating.

I am experiencing the same since yesterday.  I was fine at work, but I made a mistake, I left my stomach empty for too many hours, so I started having pain.  Then in the afternoon, I went to see a house because we want to buy, and suddenly I felt nauseous and my guts made these extreme noises.  The lady from the real estate looked at me like I had an alien inside ha ha! Today I woke up with diarrea (sp?), nausea and generally feeling crap.  What can we do?  It's the beauty of the disease!!!

I have this happen to me also. BUT, it usually is because I didn't eat on schedule or I have eaten something that didn't agree with me. Usually within a day or so I am back to normal. I try to keep something in my stomach about every 2 hours or so and watch my diet very closely.

Ugh, I am the same. I could be fine one day and the next I will be a complete garden hose and go through two TP rolls. Lately I'll wake up with night sweats, and developed a fire-engine red rash in my groin and armpit. I swear the FUN NEVER ENDS. It is so unpredictable and it not only frustrates me, but also the deans of my medical school. They don't understand that these things just pop up so randomly. I feel for you!

Most of my major flares have started similar to this. 2004 was a little different, I had mouth sores about a week before the cramps started. The answer is yes. And to me it seems like my Flare ups come out of nowhere..

Yep, in the middle of IKEA. Had a good morning, then all of a sudden, massive cramping, waves of nausea, and buckets o sweat. The pain was so severe I bit my arm to keep from yelling. People looking at me like I'm some sort of freak (and they don't even know me yet :) ); holding on to a display, because I thought I was going to pass out...Came out of the blue...totally sucked...then again, so does the disease...sick and tired of being sick and tired!!!!!
