I don't know what triggered my CD, but I do know that I have had stomach pains for as long as I can remember. I have asked my mother before and the only thing she has come up with is that I have had some sort of stomach disorder. They always blamed it on different things, when I was a baby it was colic, then when I was alittle older it was my apendix(which they could never find anything wrong with), then it was menstral cramps, then finally I was admitted into a hospital and was told I was faking my stomach problems.. Finally at the age of 22 after losing 50 lbs and being so severly anemic my skin & lips were the same color, I was admitted to a hospital and was finally diagnosed with Crons. so I never had a stressfull event that origninally set it off, unless you count beig born by a c-section and being a tiny little premie. Also I have a very large family and 90% of them all have severe crohns.
