Good Morning Starligt,
My husband and some of my best friends have Crohn's disease so I am pretty familiar with this nasty disease. My husband was dx 33 years ago and has had 4 surgeries plus flare ups over the years.
I truly feel emotional stress can influence the course of this disease. I know my husband feels stressed due to the painful, embarrassing symptoms and the worries that accompany them. He went from being very social to being a stay at home person. He hates standing out in a crowd and due to his diet can only eat certain foods so social gatherings, especially dinners etc cause him anxiety.
As far as people with anxiety having stomach problems, this is well documented by thousands of people with anxiety. I know this topic comes up frequently here in the forum.
It is not one I experience but I am sure you will be hearing from members that do.
Meanwhile work on getting better and out of the hospital. Sending you healing prayers.
