Gastric acid pump inhibitors and stomach cramps

Hello, at the moment I am in a real bad Crohn's flareup and am currently taking 40 mg of prednisone/day with 20mg of Losec (Gastric acid pump inhibitors) to control the increase in stomach acid production caused by prednisone.

Now my problem is that my stomach hurts after I eat, continues to hurt for hours afterwards, subsides, then comes back after my next meal. I am not talking about the waves of immobilizing, cramping pain associated with flareups, but a moderate tightness in in the upper regions of my gut that is really quite uncomfortable. I know that this has to be caused by either the Prednisone, Losec, or a combination of the two because I only get this pain when I am on these drugs. So far the only thing that seems to relieve these symptoms to any degree is drinking earl gray tea (which apparently stimulates the production of stomach acids, the exact opposite of what Losec does).

So is there anyone on these boards with any experience with these two types of drugs who might know what I can do about these pains? Any advice would be much appreciated.
