That said, I'm not sure if I'm in remission or not (I suspect not), so I can't rule out Crohn's completely. But I used to have worse and more extensive inflammation in the past with less stomach pain than I have nowadays. So I think some of it is IBS at least; after 18 years of Crohn's and two bowel surgeries, I think that my bowels have become more sensitized to pain. It absolutely sucks, not least because there is no obvious solution - more surgery isn't gonna help.
Do you get the pain/nausea immediately after eating or a few hours later? Immediately afterwards suggests possible stomach/duodenum issues, whereas if there is a delayed reaction it's more likely to be IBS.
