I'm not qualified to determine what your pain is. My thoughts would be that you are in the middle of a flare. Most Crohnies have issues on the lower right quadrant of their gut. Personally mine is located in the terminal illeum which right below and to the right of my belly button but for others it can be different.

Obviously you want to have this taken care of or looked into but don't work yourself up into a mess before you even know what it is. That won't help you nor will it reduce the flare since stress seems to provoke it.


Hope you feel better.

It's either your Crohn's... or your appendix... (If you haven't had it taken out already)... Or if you're female, it could be a mass on your ovary.... Or... since it radiates into the lower back it may be a kidney infection.. (Though, when I had a kidney infection *both kidneys* it kind of felt like it was closer to my ribcage than in the lower part of my body)

I agree with JAB, by the way... You need to see a doctor to find out, for sure...
I think I am being picked on by life, sometimes. But's that okay. Life and I are good buddies... I know life doesn't mean no harm. It just is the way it is. I can accept that.
