I've been getting a little concerned lately because I have been having bowel movements within 10-30 minutes of eating for a few weeks now, with lots of pain. I have Crohn's/Colitis, Celiac, IBS, GERD, ulcers and larynpharyngial reflux, and a lot of food allergies, but I do not believe I am flaring and have been eating according to my allergy-free diet. I usually have at least 10 watery BM's a day on a "normal" day (for me anyway!), but this is not typical for me. I feel like I can't go anywhere that's far from my potty, and the pain is totally rotten. Usually this only happens when I'm having a severe Crohn's/Colitis flare, but I truly do not believe that I am. I've lost 25 pounds in the last month, which I'm guessing is from what's going on. I've also completely lost my appetite for the most part and am nauseous all the time. I'm also waking up during the night for BM's, which usually only goes with a flare, but after 19 years of this, I really don't think it is! I need to get in to see my GI, but my hubby and dad just had surgeries, and they need me right now, so I'm trying to get away without going as long as possible. Thanks for your help!
