Stomach Bug or Flare Up

lbcash posted:
I have been diagnosed with Crohns for five years now. I have been off of all meds for two months do to an allergic reaction to Humira. My doc said to give my body a rest for a little while. I have suffered from heartburn and acid reflux going on two weeks now. Over two months I have lost over ten pounds and I can't afford to lose anymore. I will call my doc tommorow cause he was closed today. But two days ago I lost my appetite completely. I can't eat anything without immediately getting nauseated, but I hold it in because I hate to vomit. Then last night I started having watery diarhea at ten o'clock. Since then I have gone 12-15 times and I haven't ate anything but a small bit of chicken noodle soup and water. I have had pain once. I doubled over with it but it went away after a few minutes. I am bloated. If I eat anything I am running to the bathroom within minutes. Is this a severe flare up or a stomach virus? If this is a flare up it is the worst I've had outside of having little pain just stomach cramping.
