Crohn's Disease Symptoms


Crohn’s Disease is difficult to diagnose because it mimics other diseases. Common Crohn’s Disease symptoms includes a variety of gastrointestinal distresses as well as vague, non specific symptoms. However, there are  four classic symptoms that usually indicate Crohn’s Disease:

  • Persistent or recurrent diarrhea and sometimes blood may be present.
  • Abdominal pain and/or cramping sometimes radiating in the lower back or the right side.
  • Low grade fever.
  • Unexplained weight loss.

Although these are common Crohn’s Disease symptoms actual indications will depend on what part of the digestive tract is affected. If you are experiencing the four symptoms above plus one or more listed below, discuss the possibility of Crohn’s Disease with your physician. Additional Crohn’s Disease symptoms include:

  • Persistent or recurrent diarrhea that does not respond to over-the-counter remedies
  • Abdominal cramping after a meal
