Hi, thanks in advance for your responses.
I have had Crohns for over 20 years and have been out of remission with active crohns for the past 3 years or so.
Since last October I have had increasing abdominal pain. It is in the left just lower than the belly button. It is worse in the afternoon and evening.
I see GI doc tomorrow.
I have been trying to figure out what is making it worse or triggering the pain and something I thought of was since October I have been taking large doses of iron in the am and pm.
I was receiving IV iron until 2 months ago, but IV sites gone and trying to maintain orally.
Has anyone had an increase in pain or active disease with iron supplements?
