May be IBS: You symptoms seem more in keeping with irritable bowel syndrome than Crohns. If you had polyps removed, it would be prudent to have repeat colonoscopy if it has been 5 years since the last one. It would be useful to visit your doctor, preferably a gastroenterologist. Wish you good health!
