I was recently suffering with alot of gas/bloating and stomach pain. Not super bad pain, but enough to make me somewhat uncomfortable. I put a call into my GI and he said he suspected that I had a small intestine bacterial overgrowth. He put me on a 10 day course of Cipro and had me change to a better/different probiotic. Within 2 days of changing my probiotic and being on Cipro I feel soooo much better. Small intestine bacterial overgrowth seems to be pretty common in Crohns, so maybe this might be your problem too.
Do you think this pain feels more Crohns like or do you think it has something to do with your cycle? I know I was miserable when I was your age with my monthly cycle, but I had already had my 3 girls by then, so at age 36 I had a complete hysterectomy. I just couldn't deal with 3 weeks of misery every single month. If you think it is more of your cycle thats the problem then I might go for the lap to make sure nothing else is going on in there.
Sending you healing thoughts and prayers. I hope I was able to help some.
