Do I Have Crohn’s Disease

Posted by | May 02, 2017 | Ask a Doctor, Medical | One Comment
I’m pretty sure I have Crohn’s Disease…how can you tell? I have unexplained abdominal pain that is sometimes sharp, it almost seems like it should be appendicitis, and it has nothing to do with my period.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out, and sorry to hear that you’ve been having uncomfortable pain!

    Abdominal pain can be many things, and diagnosing Crohn’s is something that needs to be done by a medical doctor, so we suggest that you make an appointment with yours to get it checked out. The doctor needs to check whether there is an inflammation in the digestive tract, and exactly where in the tract it’s occurring, in order to diagnose Crohn’s. This means there are lab tests and procedures that have to be done at a medical facility.

    For more information about Crohn’s disease, you can check out the information here:

    Abdominal pain can also be many things other than Crohn’s, so either way, we think it’s important that you go see your medical doctor in order to get a good check up.

    Take care and hope you feel better soon,

    BYS Doctor
