It doesn't have to be a stricture or blockage, but with our disease that's the first thing that comes to mind, but sometimes it's just caused by not enough fiber in the diet, which you know we are usually told to stay away from if the disease is active. It's a catch 22.
Do you know if you have active disease? If not, maybe you could try taking a mild stool softener when this happens to see if it resolves?
