What is Crohn’s Disease?

Crohn’s disease causes inflammation of the bowels and lower digestive tract, often causing great discomfort to patients suffering from the symptoms of this inflammatory bowel disease. Patients may experience symptoms gradually, and Crohn’s disease can affect either the small intestine, large intestine, or both, as well as the rectum and anus. 

Symptoms of Crohn’s disease include: 

  • Abdominal cramping
  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Diarrhea
  • Blood in the stool
  • Reduced appetite
  • Unanticipated weight loss
  • Fistula

It’s important to note that symptoms of Crohn’s disease appear uniquely on a case-by-case basis. Symptoms may happen slowly over time or happen suddenly, may occur independently or together, and may disappear altogether for some time.
