What does a partial blockage feel like?
I've had an ileostomy for 5 months with no trouble and the last few days I've had pretty intense cramping all up my back (upper and lower) and throughout my stomach. This feeling has been on and off and is worse when I'm inactive. I've also been burping quite a bit which is abnormal for me. I'm having normal output and zero pain around the stoma. No nausea or vomiting but cold sweats. Can't figure out what it might be?
I was diagnosed with Chrone's but only had disease in the colon. Could this be disease/inflammation traveling up into my small intestine?
It's quite painful and I can't sleep - any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
