46 but I might have had it for up to 30 years. At 17 I was told I was lactose intolerant. At 31 I was told I had IBS. At 46 I found out it was Crohn's. I don't know when Crohn's really showed it's ugly head.

I was 23. My Mom had CD, I went to her Doctor when I was 13. He told me I was lactose intolerant (sounds like a recurring theme here). Both my Mom and I were diagnosed when our first born was 1. Gotta love those hormones.

CD 19 years offically, 29 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Symptoms constantly but all tests show only minor ulcerations. Currently having multiple episodes of gastritis with no known cause.

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....
