hi all

i hope there is someone out there that can help!

im a long term CD sufferer and been through the mill with it over the last 20+ years but the last two have been hell.

yesterday really did top it all off, I saw my specialist, I've been suffering fairly bad stomach pain and some throwing up, I've had my gallbladder removed and that sorted it out for a while, well until last Saturday, when the pain became mental, and food was out of the question, after chatting with my specialist he told me he thought that I had an obstruction so they are sending me for a ct scan, and then we can make a plan.

im in so much pain, I'm managing to eat little and often, but I'm sure as you know that's the last thing I want, my weight has dropped again, and I feel bunged up!

i just wondered if anyone had a similar issue and what had happened to you?

any feed back would be great

    Hi Rose and Lynne,

    Yes, when I'm feeling really bad and in pain I just want to be on my own too...a bit like an animal crawling back into my cave! Also have lovely hubby but I think the difference between good and bad days confuses him. I think we are tough ladies and when its at a low level we are so energetic as so happy not to be dealing with pain and symptoms we go hell for leather knowing that sooner or later gonna get a flare.

    I was diagnosed about 18 months ago but probably had mild symptoms and a few nasty flares over last ten years so lucky really, and in awe of you ladies !

    I have been trying deep relaxation exercises, which have helped a bit and lavender drops in bath and on pillow, but I suspect you guys have tried just about be very thing . good luck and best of health xx
