The same thing has been happening to me and I am starting to worry. This isn't a normal flare like I have had in the past, it has been going on for a while but I am not so sick that I am in bed (I am going to work going to the gym, eating normally, etc) but then am doubled over in pain and have to run to the bathroom with D and bright red blood and mucous. I am on Prednisone and remicaide, and my GI is doing all kinds of stool samples (testing me for c. diff AGAIN, parasites, etc, all the awful things you never thought you would have to think about
). I am also getting a CAT scan this week to see if it's something they are overlooking. The pain seems to be higher in my stomach than before (usually it's my lower right side) - this time it's the lower right but also a few inches above my belly button. So who knows what is going on now. It seems to be worse in the morning and during the day - at nighttime I can eat dinner and sometimes not even go to the bathroom. During the day however, I have been trying to eat very little so I am not having so many problems at work.
A side note on hemorroids though, if you have Crohn's you CANNOT get them removed. Don't even think about it. Yes there are ways to get rid of them but they are usually skin tags and will cause so many health problems if you try to remove them. Be careful!
