Does anyone else get this:
Bubbling or gurgling in the lower stomach which leads to an occasioanl passing of gas
sharp pains that last for a little bit then leave
A feeling if you could just get everything out of your system you'd surely be fine
I have had chrohns for 6 years but lately have been having these symptoms, which are pretty new to me.  I have a colonoscopy in June which revealed no inflamation, which is certainly good, but the dr. couldn't really explain the symptoms I have described above.  I was good for about 6 weeks after the colonoscopy, but have these things going on again for the past 3 days.
I have heard people take charcoal tablets for this.  Does anyone know anything about that?

i take glycolax and metamucil and they help me a lot with those kind of symptoms.
49 y/o woman.  Diagnosed 4/06 after colonscopy, SBFT, CT-scan all showed crohns. 3 months later, after pred and remicade, all tests showed no crohns. December '06 had adhesions cut through a laparoscopy. Now taking Glycolax, Ultra Fiber Plus, Florastor, and DHEA. Have become gluten-free diet per naturopath's tests.

I find I get those type symptoms if I sit for long periods, like driving on a trip. My answer is to wear loose clothing. I never wear a tight belt either. The more you move the more you get rid of gas and this sounds like what you are dealing with.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.
