I posted in too but I haven't gotten any responsives so I thought I would try here too.
I'm getting these weird crampy feelings in my guts, it is like a tightening and then there is a stomach grumbling noise. It doesn't feel that great and this has happened to me three times now. I'm not quite sure what is going on. I need some help and advice.
Thanks guys

Hello there - I think I have the same as you... I am not very fluent in the medical terms... bare with me please.
I have been searching for someone similliar to me for a long time.
I had an ostomy a few years back in 98-99 and now I have the j-pouch.

I too get very very bad grumbling noises - sometimes my gutt wakes me up at nite it gets soo bad.
And yes I have experienced adomenal [sp?] pain quite a bit - I had UC then was disease free for a few yrs & this year was diagnosed with crohns so I spend most of my time on the crohnie site here.
I wish I could give you some advice but I am fresh out, I have spent many many moments wondering what the hell is happening
to me and well, I just put my trust in the doctors.

Just be careful with what you eat - diet is very important ofcourse and don't be afraid to try some herbal vitamans and such.
That's kinda what I have been doin'.

I know I have a lot of BM's - I average about 15 a day. Yiiikkkeees! Yes, its "tuff and ruff" at the best of times!

It would be nice to keep in touch.
I'm a Canadian. Woo hoo! go OILERS!
There are a lot of US people on this website. no matter though, when your all fighting the same disease.
