I have crohns and lately have had big increase in cramping and pain which has lead me to research for anything that may help a little and has lead me to find other crohns patients that has had some relief with pain medications. With the growing pain me issues I was just interested in hearing others opinions.
When it comes to the issue prescribed pain meds, the worst thing to do is visit the Dr and start naming pain meds your heard are effective. Best just to report the pain and have the Dr make the decision. Based on your report, chances are over the counter (OTC) options will come first.
Jive, I have heard of pain meds prescribed for severe cases of crohns. It sounds like something that would stop your cramping would stop most of your pain. There is a medicine seldom used that gave me a lot of relief called Librax, it's not an narcotic, so mentioning it would not sound like drug seeking . I also know cutting out gluten has really helped some.Be careful with the pain meds they come with a price. Best wishes.
