I was diagnosed with crohn's 6 years ago and have been incredibly lucky as I've been in remission for the majority of that with only minor flare ups.
Recently I've noticed my symptoms have flared up but I felt I could deal with them until my check up at the end of March. However over the last week I've been woken up every night with unbearable cramps along with diarrhoea. I am also having cramps every time I eat anything. They start within a few minutes of eating and continue until I stop so I'm barely able to eat anything at the moment. It feels a bit like someone is squeezing all my insides to the point where I'm sitting here in tears. I've been trying to get my appointment moved sooner and luckily it's been moved to a week's time but I'm really scared about this new pain as it's never been this bad before. Has anyone experienced similar issues and what did it turn out to be? It just doesn't feel like my usual flare ups.
Thanks for your help.
