Adolf Hitler also suffered from colitis, and he was never shy from getting on stage. Be fearless and follow your dreams, no matter what stands in your way.
Are you serious? I'm German and I never heard of this. What's your source? I'd be interested to know.It's confirmed in Adolf Hitler's official medical records, he suffered from colitis.
Here are some interesting points, mind you, doctor Theodore Morell was Adolf Hitler's personal physician, "Hitler`s initial complaints were the colitis that had bothered him for years, a mild kidney condition and a problem with a leg injury suffered during World War I. Morell helped him with all three problems. From the date they met in 1937 until April, 1945, Hitler had absolute confidence in Morell. Only Hitler could overrule Morell when it came to Hitler`s health, and Morell was always available for Hitler."
Furthermore, "Once, in 1943, he received permission from Hitler to attend his brother's funeral. While he was gone, Hitler developed stomach cramps from his colitis, and he began to scream at his generals. When Morell returned to headquarters, Hitler screamed at him for not being available. The generals were even more upset with Morell. But with that exception, the two got along very well."
Hitler was never examined or administered an x-ray because he did not want to be undignified (his reasoning was clearly unstable), so there is no way for us to know for sure whether he suffered from IBD or IBS, but he certainly had a form of colitis.
