Guys, I just weaned off of entocort and had the worst flare of my life. Complete bowel obstruction.
I immediatly started pred, entocort, flagyl, pentasa until I can see my Gi on wed.
The problem is not im in severe pain 10/10 in my entire abdomen. From rib cage to belly button. Im now passing formed stools due to the pred and not experiencing any CD symptoms but the abdominal pain is killing me??
What s going on? Can flagyl cause cramping /pain?

Hello redspot,

To the best of my knowledge drinking  alcohol while taking Flagyl, and for at least 48 hours after finishing the course, can cause unpleasant symptoms such as hot flushes, abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, headache and palpitations. Otherewise I am not familiar with the medication itself causing severe abdominal pain.

I am concerned that you post your "not experiencing any CD symptoms" when symptoms of Crohn's disease include: cramping, abdominal pain etc.

IMHO any symptom of severe abdominal pain needs prompt professional medical advice. If you are a 10/10 pain scale I would say you have severe pain.

I hope this helps it some small way.
