Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If you have been labelled with crohn's disease i am sure they have made sure of that. We are always here to provide our opinion. Inflammatory bowel disease is very notorious for its symptoms and can be missed or misdiagnosed . A detailed work up is needed before labeling a patient.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.

Take care
