What are the first signs of Crohn’s disease?

The first signs of Crohn's disease can vary from person to person and can be similar to those of other digestive disorders. Some common early symptoms include:

  • Abdominal pain and cramping
  • Diarrhea, which may be bloody
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite and weight loss
  • Anemia, resulting from blood loss in the intestine
  • Mouth sores
  • Skin rashes
  • Joint pain and stiffness

Symptoms may be mild at first and may come and go, making it difficult to diagnose the condition initially. It is important to see a healthcare professional if you have any of these symptoms or if you have a family history of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Early diagnosis and treatment can help to prevent complications and improve outcomes.
