74 year old female severe abdominal pain

My mom just had ct scan was told she has narrowing of small intestine. She has had  two episodes in the past year that pain in lower left abdomen was so severe she lost conciousness and blood flow to her fingers. Stools are always pale and soft she has bowel movement every morning.  Since CT scan she has constant  pain in her stomach and back ,worse on lower left side.  She has always had a high pain tolerance but she's having hard time with this pain. Please help!

Daughter,
Vicki

My husband has crohn's so I can try to help, has she been diagnosed with anything.  crohn's can create scar tissue that narrows the bowel, does she throw up with the pain or get constipated?  You need to go to a gastroenterologist asap.  Entocort which is a steriod antinflammatory which is not system and only affects the stomach might be useful also.  My husband had scar tissue from his first crohn's surgery 19 years ago and that was causinga  narrowing of the bowel and extreme pain and attacks.
