back pain and crohns

I have had such severe back pain for weeks now, at first mus=ch like sciatic pain, but now it is centralized in my lower back making getting up and sitting down almost  unbearable. I am afraid that it may be another crohns symptom.How much tylenol do I dare take without affecting my liver? Does anyone know any quick fixes for this type of pain.? And does anyone else with crohns suffer from back pain ?

Yes, I did have back pain when my chrons was flaring.  You need to go to the GI doctor.  Also try taking percagesic.  It is an over the counter pain reliever but does not affect liver or stomach.  Again do see your GI doctor, it sounds like a chrons flareup.

My chrons has been in remission for 4 years now, I had to have bowel resection but so far so good.

Good luck
