Hi guys! It's 4:08 am and I'm awake, and extra nauseous. Just thought I'd share and see if anyone else presents the same way I do! Since the beginning my primary symptoms have been abdominal pain, a nauseous "gaggy" feeling that leaves me unable to think about food without almost heaving, and throwing up. I'm not one of those people who has bloody BMs (ever) or all that much D (sometimes).
On that note, does anyone have any tips for dealing with such terrible nausea? I hate this feeling!

Sidenote: I was only diagnosed with crohns after having a colonoscopy scheduled immediately after I had an ultrasound that showed what looked like crohns, while getting tested for possible ovarian cysts (due to pain). My doctor kept saying I probably didn't have it (though my aunt does) because I wasn't having a lot of D with blood in it
19 y/o female, diagnosed crohns december 2008
currently taking 500 mg pentasa 4x daily

I can't take Pentasa because I get very nauseous esspecially in the mornings. So I am back to my Asacol.

I know what you mean, I hate that feeling. Even if I would eat crackers or something small I could hardly get it down. I hope you feel better soon and can get some relief.

Ginger gravol works for me. No tiredness and it settles your stomach enough to eat.

Also, if I can't stomach a solid meal I have a meal replacement like Boost or Ensure. That is usually enough for me to be able to stomach some solid food.
- Diagnosed Nov 08' but undiagnosed for 13 years prior with no major problems
- Put on Salofalk, UGH caused more bad than good.
- First major flare Aug-Sep 09 - I attribute it to intolerance to meds and crappy GI
- Perianal abscess - EUA & possible Seton surgery Oct 14-09 - WISH ME LUCK
- No meds currently except flagyl and percs for pain

D and blood is not always present with crohn's the symptoms vary from flare to flare and from person to person. Blood is most common if the CD is affecting your colon, and many CDers have constipation issues, but that doesn't mean it's not CD.

I vote for natura fresh ginger or gravol if that doesn't work.

bee propolis caps 500mg one cap twice/day
omegas 369 caps one cap twice/day
probiotics 10 billion cfu once/day
vitamins C-calcium ascorbate (easy on the gut) and vitamin A each once/day
Prodiem fibre supplement one cap before bed
I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

I swear by Hycosamine as a wonder drug. It's an abdominal "anti-spasmodic," so it calms the muscles down. I rarely take it, but carry it with me everywhere. Most people have never heard of it - but it might be helpful so you can get some food down.
Diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in Jan 2007, though sick since mid 90’s. Currently on Humira and Protonix. Have had success with Entocort and Cipro; negative experience with Methotrexate.

Whenever I have had nausea like that it generally means I have some narrowing going on. It sounds like you have the similar type of Crohns I do, which is the stricturing or scarring type. I suffer with more constipation and rarely with D. I take Zofran or Phenergan for my nausea. Zofran is great as it doesn't make you drowsy like the Phenergan can. Good luck!
