i've been in remission since about january '07 and have been feeling pretty good. lately though, i've been feeling nauseas constantly. i had been pretty tolerant to most foods and minimal alcohol, but recently even very minimal alcohol gets me violently ill (i've stopped drinking altogether...!). the past several days i come home from work and am super nauseas though... it's getting pretty annoying. i'm pretty new to crohns (dx in dec 05 and was sicksicksick until 07--it took 2 resections to get me healthy)... is nausea a sign that maybe i'm having a flare?

Sarah, it's good that you've stopped drinking... nausea can indeed be a sign of a flare-up... considering what you've already been through in terms of surgery, I'd be tempted to see the doctor if the nausea persists daily like that. You don't want to get to a point where it's so bad that you can't eat. Hope the doctor can help you with this.

With me, my flares always start with being nausea.  That's my first sign that I need to start taking steps to prevent a full blown flare.  I hope it's not the case with you!  I would see your GI if it continues. Good luck and I'm praying for you!

Crohn's meds: Humira-bi-weekly injections, Asacol- 4 pills-2x daily, Prednisone taper...20 mg!
Humira's not working so MTX is next step for me!

I have been having some vomiting, and I was told that & nausea could be due to crohn's. Please visit your doctor & post again.

Nausea if my chief complaint just about everyday, and I am in remission. I would definetly contact your GI, could be a sign of some narrowing going on. My nausea is because of the changes my resections have caused. I have to make sure I eat a little something every few hours and that seems to help. I also take Zofran in the mornings and Phenergan at bedtime. Good luck and keep us posted.
