I haven't been officially diagnosed either, but yes, I have days when I am very ill and the pain is difficult to deal with, and other times I feel pretty good. Sometimes, such as lately, the pain is tolerable but I have nausea which is distracting....
I am currently experimenting with my diet to see if eating very small amounts helps with the pain - so far so good, but as I say this is just an experiment. I had what I (and my doctors) believed was a partial bowel obstruction, and I got through it by going on a liquid only diet. I will let you know if my "less is more" diet works.
Welcome to the board, and please feel free to ask any questions that you may have. Hopefully one of the people on this forum with more knowledge than I have will be able to answer you more accurately than I have. I hope this helps.
