I haven't been diagnosed yet either but having lots of symptoms. I'm having new colonoscopy first of year and GI going to take LOTS of biopsies he said. As for the seasickness, ask your doctor for some anti-nausea medicine to help with it. I have Promethazine from having migraines and getting nauseous. It does help. There are several different meds for nausea if that one doesn't help you. In meantime, have you tried taking OTC Dramamine? I'm on here frequently and would be happy to talk with you anytime. Just like I said, not for sure that I have chrohn's. But either way, you've come to a great place for support and friendship. The people are great. So hope to hear more from you. Hugs and God Bless!

Hello Melinda, sorry to hear you are feeling lonely. Believe me I understand. Crohns is not understood at all. Sometimes the diarhea makes it hard to attend public gatherings. I take diarhea medicine before I go to try to head it off. Also I dont ever want to be where there is not a bathroom.lolI just found this site but there seems to be some nice people here. I will talk anytime you want. Logangirl

what kind of medicine? I don't seem to be worried to much yet about that, I seem to be able to hold it until I get home then what seems like such an emergency is one explosion per say then done. I really suffer from gas and pain. The seasickness is the worst.

Kohart, have you been diagnosed with crohns yet or still going thru the tests? If you are taking meds for crohns some of those will definitely make you nauseated. Ask your GI or PCP for anti nausea meds. I am assuming that is what you mean by "seasick"? Alot of the time going thru the diagnosis for crohns is long and frustrating. Let us know what is happening. Glad you joined.

Hi there

Welcome to this fab site where you can guarantee 100% support from everyone.

Just a thought...

Have you had a final diagnosis? if not If I were you I would refrain from anti diareals unless your specialist suggests them, there a lot to having crohns the most common misconception in the folk who have little experience is " people with crohn poo a lot" and although this is true theres a depth to this illness that always needs a specialists advice.

I have strictures {scar tissue from previous flairs} these cause obstructions very painful normally requiring for me a hospital visit, and because of this I would never restrict the flow of food waste and I mean flow,I would be scared too do this even though i would be glad of the break.

I hope you have or receive the answers soon.

Take good care

Jackie thank you for giving me advice, my newest problem is not going and am backed up for days where I used to pooh alot. Also I was wondering does anyone have nightsweats where they are soaking wet all night and then have the chills all day down to the bone or is this something different?

I've had the nightsweats along with the cold chills when my crohns is active. Are you taking any pain meds? Sometimes that can cause constipation.
