Crohn’s disease is a gastrointestinal tract infection which not only affects the small and large intestine but the colon, gall bladder, and anus as well. It can have a very traumatic effect on an individual.


Often this condition goes unnoticed in individuals for so long that it goes untreated till the last stage where it results in serious consequences. Many people still don't know the symptoms of Crohn’s disease. Here are a few:

Trouble eating and drinking:

A common symptom which may be experienced by this disease is that right after you eat or drink something you feel the need to visit the washroom. Your intakes usually result in being improperly digested and excreted out right away.

Dehydration:

In Crohn’s disease, a person has uncontrollable diarrhea which results in weakness and feeling of dehydration. This is another typical symptom of Crohn’s disease.

Stomach pain:

If you experience any pain in the abdomen region for more than two days, then consult your nearest physician as this is another sign of Crohn’s disease and should not be taken lightly.

Loose motion:

People suffering from Crohn’s disease suffer from a case of extreme loose motions where they feel the urge to visit the washroom more frequently than an average person may need to. This is one of the most common symptoms of this condition.

Dental problems:

If you are experiencing these symptoms combined with gum bleeding, swelling, cavities, and abscesses formation within the mouth, then you should visit a doctor. This is called Pyostomatitis vegetans and is on the list of usual symptoms of Crohn’s disease.

The color red:

If you go to the washroom to excrete and you notice that it has a red color, then this means that your internal gastric tract is damaged. This should be taken seriously. This symptom usually becomes visible in the early stages.

Sore patches:

Formation of inflammation may also be caused in the form of sore patches over the body, not just internally, but visible externally over the skin on the area near the eyes, legs, thighs, and arms.

Heat flashes:

Due to this disease, a person may experience hot flashes, an irregular shift in body temperature, and sweating during different parts of the day. It also becomes more frequent during the night time as well.
