Hi, I'm new to the group.
I've had Crohns most all of my life, I suspect, but seven years ago it cought up to me when my colon ruptured. I'm on remicade and imuran.
One of the worst things I've found out about this disease is, at least for me, that pain medications seem to always make matters worse, they slow down the system to much. YOu just have to find out what foods you tolerate best and stick with those.
I know what you mean about feeling worse after going to the bathroom. That is the worse time for me too.
Take care, El
