Does anyone ever get backed up from crohns?  To the point you feel like you stomach is just going to explode?  How do you get relief?  I have been eating fiber and drinking prune juice but just can't seem to feel right again.  This has been going on for about 2 weeks.  Occasionally I have a good BM, but lately I have felt like this and it I have no appetite and haven't really been eating much.  I haven't been sleeping the best either because of the discomfort.  Any suggestions? 
Thank you

I suffer from constipation too. I don't know if I have a narrow spot or what. I've gone through a variety of remedies that work for awhile, but then quit. Right now, I take a dose of Milk of Magnesia a couple times a week and eat a Metamucil wafer everyday. It's doing the trick for now. I'm also thinking of switching to a different brand of probiotics to see if that helps.

Hi Brian I did that with the prune juice before I got blocked not right before but awhile before my abcess surgery. Have you had a CT or a ultra sound to check for a abcess? I'd get back to the Dr. and tell him what you been going threw. lol gail

Brian, I have a tendency to get constipated also. I take Miralax every day and it really helps me. Just make sure you talk to your doctor to rule out a blockage.
