Hi! I just joined this team. Was diagnosed with crohn's in 1992, at age 14. I've been in remission for years and am pretty much meds-free, but just recently I had some problems and learned I have celiac in addition to crohn's. I was already avoiding wheat, but now I'm transitioning to gluten free, too.
For pain, I used to take dicyclomine. Hot water bottles help. Lying on my left side. Meditation, visualization. These days, I'm well enough to take advil, but if your symptoms are active you should definitely avoid it, especially if you're bleeding!
