my early symptoms were, nausea, vomiting, fever, pain in gut, and finally obstuction which led to first surgery, first obstuction was naturally at 1 in the morning.

Mine were extreme stomach pains, loss of apetite, weight loss and swollen joints/arthritis.

Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety.  Too many meds to list them all.  =)

Mine's relatively mild compared to some on here. My symptoms included having D far more frequently than is "normal", and very urgent trips to the bathroom at least once every couple of days (i.e., I'll be sitting watching TV feeling fine and then OH NO CRAMPS, GOTTA GO NOW, even when it's not D). Other clues were the presence of perianal skin tags, and my being anemic despite eating lots of high iron foods. I only got checked out because there's a family history of Crohn's.

Female, 29 y/o, dx Crohn's in June 2010, but probably had it for 10 years prior
Currently on 9 mg Entocort, plus elemental iron and calcium/vitamin D supplements
