My impression is you could have Crohn's disease. Crohn's disease is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It causes inflammation of the lining of your digestive tract, which can lead to abdominal pain, severe diarrhea and even malnutrition. Inflammation caused by Crohn's disease can involve different areas of the digestive tract in different people.

khagihara :

People with severe Crohn's disease may also experience:



  • Fever

  • Fatigue

  • Arthritis

  • Eye inflammation

  • Mouth sores

  • Skin disorders

  • Inflammation of the liver or bile ducts


You should see your doctor or a GI doctor to have a physical exam, a blood test, a fecal occult blood test, and imaging studies such as colonoscopy.
