Ok so I was looking around more on Crohn's and ran across this site
Says there is a link to Aspirin Use and Crohn's, not sure, however Before I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and I had ton of pain, I would take alot of BC headache powders to get thru the day. Which is basically pure Aspirin.
Any thoughts?

NSAIDs are never good for IBD. It can mess with your Crohn's but don't cause it.

NSAIDs can cause ulcers and bleeding, usually in the stomach and beginning part of the intestine. It can't cause Crohn's though but could make it worse which may be why theres a link to use and diagnosis - it just uncovers the pre-existing but undiagnosed condition.
