Hi, I have a wee flare up this week ........ been good for 2yrs since I started Remicade, but was very late for trt last month due to other infections rolleyes anyhoo ...I just wonder about the pains ......... the Crohns is in the last ft of my ilieum and am having the usual chronic pain ... but also feel it really sore up in my rib cage even my chest .... especially if I exhert myself (like playing rope with the dog... I know .... stop playing with the dog lol) is this quite normal ?... or maybe not a flare up and I pulled muscle somewhere ?... though I'm pretty sure its Crohns related!! I think I recall it being high before .. but not quite across the chest cry
Thank you :-)

I had a bad gut day yesterday and today on the right side of my rib cage is extremely sore. I believe it is leftover referred pain from my intestines that were so irritated yesterday. Also, when I flare gut wise, it will always affect my joints too.

gassy it can happen but in general we want you to check it out with a doctor. Since chest pain is a ER sign, you might want to have it checked out.
