My Crohn's is causing me so much pain right now, its hard for me to even type this or think straight. I can't get out of bed or really walk anywhere right now. My sister has to bring me stuff. I've used the bathroom twice in the past hour, both stools were bloody. It wasn't alot of blood and it was red, but I feel like I don't know what to do. I feel bad going to the ER... I'm just in so much pain right now. please help.

Dear Easier2Run

I do not know your past history but I have a husband with Crohn's and if he was in severe pain and having some blood in his stools I would call his physician and talk with him/her or the physician on call for his  GI Doctor. Call you own physician as he  may suggest you go to the ER.

Just my humble opinion.

Take care,

If you are experiencing that much pain + the blood in your stools I would definately go to the ER or at the very least contact your GI, please dont keep suffering.
