I know just the pain you mean - in the middle upper abdomen. In fact, I just posted a question about
it a while back. I also have TI Crohn's and have been told that the mid abdomen thing could be just swelling caused by CD or reflux. I do take Protonix twice a day for reflux and this seems to help that bloating/soarness a bit. Sometimes it's better and sometimes not. Doesn't seem to matter what I eat. Bending down also gives me pain and stretchy feeling in my right lower side (TI area).
Dx'd CD in August 2007 - 42-yr-old wife and mom
Allergic to Entocort and Prednisone / Not sure what's next
Currently on Protonix, calcium and multi-vit; and Flovent (for asthma)
