My fiance has a history of crohns disease (15yrs), but lately she has been having a constant sharp stabing pain in her upper abdomen. She also has nausea and vomiting whether she eats or not. Most of the time the pain and nausea get worse after she eats or drinks. She has had this pain for 7 months now. She has done every test possible for her crohns and it is showing negative for everything. All her docs are saying it is NOT her crohns acting up, but they cannot figure out what is causing the pain or where is it coming from. She has already had 2 stomach surgeries for her crohns. A total of 37cm removed from her intestines. She has no adhesions at all. She is taking pain medication but it is not helping. Can you help please???
