Dealing with the Cramping of Crohn's

The location of your cramps matters, too

Because Crohn's can affect pretty much any part of your digestive tract, you can develop inflammation in so many different places. Unsurprisingly, your pain will usually reflect the part of your gut that is most affected. Usually, Crohn's disease affects the small intestine, and in this case, you'll usually feel more cramps in the lower right side of your stomach. Inflammation of the small bowel is also more associated with pain after eating meals, so if you're someone who suffers from this, you can try to minimize it by eating more frequent, smaller meals rather than large ones.
