I am usualy pretty good about watching what I eat for the obvious reasons, well tonight I messed up and I am paying for it now, at dinner I didnt realize until it was to late that what I was eating had small pieces of sausage in it.  I thought I would be ok since I didn't eat that much of it but boy was I WRONG since then I have been having terrible nausea (I took my medication for it, and its not helping) and I can feel my stomach trying to somehow get rid of it one way or another needless to say Ive been to the bathroom in the past 2 hours at least 6 times cant say for sure if Im done and each time I run in I grab my trusty barf bucket just in case....I just feel sooooo terrible Ive only been dealing with crohn's since November so Im still trying to watch what I do, but I just cant believe I ate that I should have spit it out..well thanks for listening to my small vent..Laura

Oh goodness, I hope you feel better! We've all been there, and unfortunately the only way to know for sure what your body can and can't handle is by trial and error! Heck, it's been two years and I still learn new things about what my body likes/doesn't like. Take care!!

I don't know if this will make you feel better but having dealt with this for much longer than you, I still goof up (or cheat on purpose) once in a while. Then you pay for it. I ate way too much garlic last night and both my husband and I are paying for it now. I was diagnosed 18 years ago and I still have not learned my lesson. Nauseous and sprinting to the potty today too....I know it will pass with lots of fluid and safe foods today (mmm dry waffles for breakfasts).
The important thing is that you learn the foods you can "never" handle, the foods you can handle if you are not flaring, the foods you can handle on your best days only and things that you can eat any time.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
I'm riding on the escalator of life....

I used to hate the taste of sausage and never ate it so I had no idea if it would effect my crohns. Recently I started liking the taste again. Usually I eat the pre-cooked ones that you just heat up. Two nights ago my husband cooked real sausage and we had them on these fiber one wheat rolls. I was running to the bathroom all day yesterday. I don't know if it was the sausage or the fiber in the rolls but I am on safe foods for another day or so.
26 Year old married female law student (last year!!). Diagnosed w/ CD 4 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD. I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid. For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn. I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13. I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium. Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night. I also take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

and watch but I mess up at times too and pay for it. Sometimes its just easy to do.

It's so easy to mess up that way..I tried eating a pizza that came without sauce the other day and I felt absolutely terrible. We all slip up I guess, but hopefully trial and error will help us avoid those kinds of foods later on. I hope you get to feeling better. I'm so sorry it did that to you...

Every now and then I would decide speghetti and meatballs would not make me sick. I was always wrong until I started MTX-now I can eat it!! But, for years I knew I should not and about twice a year would anyway.
