Part C: Questions

What are the aggravating factors? Is there an activity or an inactivity that causes pain? Is
there a certain time of day when the pain is worse?

Mainly stress and menstruation. When there is a flare happening, the pain is worse in the morning and evenings. The pain seems to subside during the afternoon.
What are the relieving factors? Does repositioning help? Common pain relief like tylenol?
Does cold/warm application, massage, distraction, reposition, art therapy or music help?
Laying down and eating a very bland diet. Sometimes curling up into the fetal position
helps. Also, the use of warm compresses can help.
How is your physical activity and mobility? How does your daily physical activity compare
today to before your illness? How does your pain affect your day and your productivity?
My physical activity is even less than compared to before my illness. Doctors always recommend exercising more, but I don’t usually have the motivation to do it, especially during a flare. Depending on the level of pain determines how much I can get done in a day. Sometimes there are days where all I can do is just lay in bed and rest.
Do you participate in fewer activities because of pain or fear of onset of pain?
Yes. I do not participate in physical activities like I used to. I also fear that certain
symptoms that come along with Crohn’s will arise. PATIENT PAIN ASSESSMENT
How do you feel emotionally—now or when you had or have pain? Does your pain provide
you with a positive outlook? Are you happier on days without pain?
It took a while to cope with the pain but now that it has been a few years, I think that it has
helped become stronger emotionally. I am happier on days without pain.
Part D: Additional Questions (Optional)

Do you view your pain as something temporary or permanent? How has successful or
unsuccessful pain management contributed to this belief?
My pain will be permanent since my condition is chronic, but I have found some very
successful pain management that I think will help me live a fulfilled life.
Do you feel this experience has prevented personal growth? Encouraged it?
Yes, of course. This particular experience helped me understand that it’s way more
common than I thought and it has encouraged my curiosity of the human body.
How has pain affected your personal relationships or social life? Are you more
withdrawn? Feel isolated? See friends more or less often?
I did lose some personal relationships from my pain and it has caused me to be more
withdrawn. I can no longer drink alcohol so social events can be more of a drag than anything. But my really good friends have always stayed by my side and continue to be extremely supportive.
Do you share with those around you about your experience? How do the people you share
with respond—empathy, love, pity, disregard, etc.?

Some people don’t always know what Crohn’s Disease is but everyone is always very empathetic and loving. My family and friends have been incredible during my years of coping and finding pain management that works for me.
How has/have others’ reaction to your experience effected you? Do you feel comforted,
supported, alienated, ignored?

Everyone’s reactions have made me proud of my disease. Yes, there are some gross symptoms that come along with this disease, but that doesn’t make me a gross person. Besides, everyone has had one of the symptoms at least once in their lifetime so there is nothing to be ashamed of. I am completely supported by the people who matter. PATIENT PAIN ASSESSMENT
