What are the symptoms?

The most common symptoms of Crohn’s disease are abdominal pain, often in the lower right area, and diarrhea. Rectal bleeding, weight loss, arthritis, skin problems, and fever may also occur. Bleeding may be serious and persistent, leading to anemia. Children with Crohn’s disease may suffer delayed development and stunted growth. The range and severity of symptoms varies.

    Well, my first diagnosis was ulcerative colitis, just another way of saying, “we can’t figure out if you have Crohns or UC. I have the rectal bleeding. At first I didn’t have
    pain, but I have pain now. Smile (I’m muttering under my breath). I don’t have the
    diarrhea, I’m constipated half the time! It’s almost as bad. I’ve been on 3 different drugs & the cure as is bad as the condition. I’ve met others with Crohns so I know the symptoms vary widely. I have some Crohns symptoms, some UC symptoms. It boils down to the same thing: I need to listen to my body.
