    Crohn's and stomach pain

    Hey all,

    I've had Crohn's for many years now but I have been feeling pretty good the last 8 months or so. My last problem was a pseudo-obstrucion that was resolved with Mestinon. I take only Asacol at this point to control Crohn's.

    I've had upper GI issues over the years: gerd, ulcers in duodenum, ulcers in esophagus, this last due to clindamyacin. Now I take Prevacid twice a day and I've been fine for a good 8 years more or less.

    I'm experiencing a new pain about 2 inches of so above the navel and it starts with eating almost anything (and I mean as soon as I swallow) and last a while. I've never had this specific pain and I'm wondering should I go see my GI? The pain isn't that bad (5 or so), but it is annoying.

    Could Crohn's cause this kind of symptoms? Any thoughts?

    Thanks!

Hurts really bad when I eat or drink. going to give it another few days before going to the doc.. already had a operation due to crohns.

    Check out Dr Tom Borody Australia. He has been curing crohns and other conditions for years. St. Vincents Hospital Sydney/Melbourne are trialing his method as we speak.
