I wonder how often people get this feeling after eating. Its a problem for me.

Does it affect your concentration or get ligh-headed? Is it common to have rash? OR mouth ulcer? or eye pain ? or leg pain?

yes to all but the rash...are you allergic to something you eat a lot of? Are you on any meds?

Yes to all of the above as well, including the rash thing. I had crohn's for 4 years before it ever showed up, but now the rash appears here and there when I'm flaring. Mine looks kinda like hives, but lingers kinda like razorburn.

Are you actually experiencing all of these symptoms, or are you just curious? Crohn's can really do a number on your absorbption, and not absorbing enough vitamins and minerals is often the cause of a multitude of our symptoms - including most of what you listed. Have you had any bloodwork done recently that might help you puzzle some of this out? For example, if you're having trouble concentrating you might be low on B vitamins I think it is.

I have CBC and sedimental rate and small bowel follow through, it show normal. The only thing that was not is the IBD serology 7 that test my ASCA and Anti-ompC are high. Plus IBS symptom and constipation after a meal.
I have more problem with feeling tire and cranky and light pain in above and below the belly region. The pain only occur after eating and goes away after several hours. The rash is more like blood blister in the mouth, ance like on my chest and cherry dot on my legs. My symptoms improve if I eat less and strict diet. Are you guys on constant pain or only after you eat ? Can you manage with your diet alone?

Hi Noy sure about managing with diet alone but since I have been on low roughage diet it has helped alot ,I had IBS for many years but mostly D as a problem with pain of cramping. I knew foods werre bothering me but the low residue I am on now makes a big difference in knowing what to eat .So I follow easy to chew easy to digest foods .Some meds I was on gave me a rash but none now .lol gail
