So a little background, havent been on here in a while.
Was Diagnosed with Crohns 4 years ago at 21 years old (was a VERY active, VERY healthy individual before Crohns out of the blue reared its ugly head, ate clean, worked out 5 days a week, was in impecable health, didnt smoke, didnt drink, blah, blah) and did the usual steroids regime first round, tapered and two months later it came back, did prednisone a second time, then tapered onto Imuran at 250mg/day, succesfully went into remission and had been in remission for approximately 2 1/2 years until a month ago had a flare, which hasnt gotten too bad yet (only going to the can maybe 3 times a day, but for the most part no pain and definitly no bleeding, so only in beginning stages), doctor had tapered me down to 175mg/day of imuran by this point but am now back to 225mg/day of Imuran.
I am going for both a colonoscopy and gastreoscopy (spelling? right name? the procedure where they stick a tube/camera down into your stomach) in a week and a half since my new GI wants to see what areas are being affected this time around.
So through lots of reading about flares i decided to on my own implement a liquids diet to try and give my intestines a bit of a rest and maybe slow down the process until i get the scope done to see what options i have to get things under control, i did a full blown liquids diet for 4 days, and despite feeling empty and hungry, felt much better by the 4th day, as obviously all the cramping, washroom urgency, random pains, had gone away....so i started onto a BRAT diet on day 5 and now, ever since i started back on solids i feel nauseas around the clock, especially when i wake up in the morning, been that way for 3 days now, today i thought i was going to have to stop the car on the way to work to throw up. Has anyone ever experienced this? I even took some Pepto Bismol this morning to try and calm the feeling down but no such luck at all. i am still on the brat diet and drinking lots of fluids, getting lots of sleep etc, but it wont go away.
As a side note, even when my Crohns was bad, i NEVER got nauseas, the only time i have ever thrown up in my life was from eating too much crap a couple times at parties and halloween as a kid, and once or twice when i got the flu or stomach flu, so this is concerning for me since i am not used to the feeling of being nauseas around the clock.
Hope someone else has experienced this and says it will go away and that its part of the diet change?
