  Hi everyone!
I am new to crohn's and this forum.
I just have one question.  Does anyone get pain in the area of their crohn's after exercise?  I have mentioned this to my doctor, and he just kind of looked at me and chuckled as if I was crazy. confused
Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.
I currently take 100mg of 6mp and miralax up to 2x daily due to extreme constipation! (TMI!)
Thanks All!

Thanks for the reply littlemiss.
Mine usually lasts for a few days. It's starting to be a real bummer.

I'm a male that used to lift weights before I got sick. Right now I'm slowly working my way back to weights using push-ups, pull-ups, other calisthenics, and there is always pain in my joints and in my abdominal region especially where I have my "crohns" when I work out. It sucks but, I have found supplements that make it atleast a little bit better.

I have adhesions and strictures associated with my crohn's and I also have hernias. You might want to be gentle with yourself until you figure out why you have the pain. when my adhesions were the worst (before surgical lysis last july) bending over to weed or paint trim, or stuff like that would cause pain for a week and an I'd be unable to eat anything except liquids.

With that gone, I found if I lifted anything in an awkward way, the same thing kinda happened -- ends up my bowel gets stuck in a hernia, and I've got another few days of pain and not being able to eat.

Fortunately my GP found the hernia after I made an X with a magic marker on myself. It was quite obvious -- once someone bothered to examine it!! I'm scheduled for surgery next month. I'm not trying to scare you, but I am suggesting you be gentle and look to see if you can find a cause for the pain. One thing I did which made my surgeon feel happy, even though it made me feel like an idiot:
over the course of a few months, every time I felt "that pain" I took a picuture of my tummy with my fingers marking out the spots where it hurt. Ir ended up it was always the same 2 spots every time! He's going to use that as a map.... anyway, I hope none of this applies to you!!! :)

Thanks for the replies.
I also have trouble with the lifting of heavy objects. My doc seems to just dismiss the pain b/c my crohn's is mild right now (as of my last scope 1yr ago). I had a stricture in the past but it could be scarring, I guess.

I get pain in the area of my Crohns anytime I do exercises that involve my abs, especially when doing the hula hoop on my Wii Fit.
