My name is jake, im 20 y/o and live in ohio. I have recently developed symptoms of Crohn's disease and im freaking out just a bit considering that my aunt was diagnosed young before her teens, my grandfather is currently in and out of the hospital with colitis possible crohns, my entire family on my mothers side struggle with ibs, i was aware i had this since my teens.
For one month now (in which i have lost 15lbs) i awake in the morning with diarrhea, sometimes containing blood. I also have cramping pains in my abdomen which are eased with bentyl, but dont really go away till it dulls down and eventually dies off later in the day. The cramping is accompanied by stabbing pains in my upper left abdomen and middle right. The pains are usually worse in the morning, but do happen in the evening and can be just as bad if not worse. I also get very nauseous in the morning throwing up a couple times, but usually falls just short of doing so, i do get so bad that i hug the toilet for about
15 mins. This also happens in the pm and is accompanied by the stomach cramping and stabbing pains, but is usually more spuratic and short lived moments. I have also lost most of my appetite and get hungry, but either my guts don't agree, or i get too worried about
how long its even going to stay in.
I am very worried about
this and could use some good comments of encouragement and prayers?
