Yesterday morning was really bad for me. I balled my eyes out for ten minutes because my side didnt feel right. It didnt hurt per se , it kind of felt like my intestines were contracting. I could tell somethjng wasnt right but there was no pain, i felt very weak and exhausted after my crying fit was over and everytime i ate i felt like i was going to get sick.any ideas of what is going on?

The "contracting" feeling is a normal Crohn's symptom. Not downplaying it at all though, it can be very painful!
I would get in contact with your GI, they can prescribe something like Bentyl (it has different names depending where you are) but its an anti-spasmodic med. It doesn't help everyone but I don't think it is too pricey. It did wonders for me though. They might also be able to prescribe something for your nausea as well. If you can make an appointment I would ask for your blood levels be check just to make sure there is nothing serious going on.

I'm sorry you're having a tough time.

Unfortunately the feeling you're describing is something a lot of us crohnies can be all too familiar with.

Make sure you tell your GI about it, since sometimes it can be a sign of a narrowing in the intestines.

As adfiz says, you can ask for an anti-spasmodic medication which helps to calm the gut down and lessen painful spasms. I found this type of medication really helpful for me.
