I have been nauseas and have had back pain for about a month now.  I saw my GI two weeks ago and told her about it. We did tests but everything came back normal.  Its getting to the point were I dont want to go out anymore and I am having a harder time trying to make myself eat anything.  Pain killers arent really working. My bowels are beging to change and I have had a lot of mucous lately and a little blood a few times.  The last part is not normal for me.  I was wondering should I call my GI again, or should I just wait and see and hope everything will work out?

I would contact your GI again. Are you taking anything for the nausea? I use Zofran 8 mg every morning and Phenergan 25 mg every night. Both are good for the nausea, the Zofran doesn't cause drowsiness.

Before my resections, nausea usually was a sign that I had some narrowing going on in my intestinal tract. Definetly don't let this wait. You don't want things getting out of control.

I have constant back pain and I was told it was due to my Crohn's. I notice that the back pain intensifies and I get nausea when I'm starting to flare. My "normal" symptoms of Crohn's is passing of blood and mucous so I can't help you there. I would get a hold of your GI if your symptoms aren't normal. Best of luck!

I have had back pain for 1 week and half.  I saw a regular internist who indicated that my back pain is due to muscle strain.   It is getting better.  But today I am having a little diarrhea (a kind of flare).
