I suffer with constipation related to my Crohns too. I take stool softners nightly to keep things softer and easier to pass. You might want to try those vs the coffee. I cannot take vitamins either, they always upset my stomach. But one supplement that I have had recent success with is Vitamin D. I started taking 2000 units and it has really helped with my fatigue and joint pain, maybe that might be helpful to you too. Good luck!
