    I'm usually only sick if I'm having a flare up, the pain causes the sickness. Occassionally if I've had a big meal I will be sick but apart from that I'm okay.

      I know it sounds weird but have you tried baby food - the smooth stuff? If I'm feeling bad it's the only thing I can keep down. Milk is good but too much juice is a bit acidic for your stomach. It's a bit like being pregnant, finding something that you can keep down x

    Hey Susan,

    I have you told your medical team about this. I don't want to scare you but from my Experince I had the same issue. I just couldn't keep food down. But it would only be once or twice a week. I then had a MRI done and it showed that I had a huge stricture(narrowing of the gut). I than had to have surgery.

    I was told to try reduce and dairy when I was vomitting Not sure why. And also have soft easy to diegest food. Such as purée foods.

    I hope you get better soon

    I must be very lucky.  I have two consultants, one for rheumatology and one for crohns who talk to each other.  Two crohns nurses, 3 rheumatology nurses a OT nurse a physiotherapist , a cancer nurse and an excellent GP and practice nurse.  I could not be better cared for.  The NHS at its best.  They copy me all the communication from the hospital to the GP.

    Hi!

    I haven't been diagnosed with crohns but they suspect it is some kind of IBD.

    I have the same problem as you!! Mine is everyday and its so draining! Was wondering whether you got any answers regarding yours?
