Over the last year or two I've had a few occasions where I have an excrutiating, white-light, blinding pain in my lower right side. Usually it happened when I was getting out of bed. It would hurt for a few seconds and then fade and ache for a little while.
I was just dx'd with CD about 2 months ago. I always thought this pain was muscular because I am so flabby and out of shape (after two kids and lack of exercise). But now that I know about the CD and have been told it's in my terminal ileum, I wonder about that pain. I'm starting to get more dull, achy pain in that area now too. Does anyone have experience with that super, sharp pain and what it may be? I'm just trying to get used to all the different pains, aches, spasms and such that go along with this disease. Do certain pains mean certain things?

I know the pain you are talking about in the lower right side.  I was diagnosed in 1995 and have dealt with that pain for about the last 10 years.  The TI is where most of my episodes with my Crohns happens and although I'm not really sure what exactly causes the pain I do know that when it gets really bad to where I have to take pain medicine that it means I'm in for a bad flare-up.  When I first asked my doctor he said that it could be caused by scar tissue and the narrowing at the TI.
