Lisa shares what she has discovered about her Crohn's disease symptoms since her diagnosis.
I have learned about my particular Crohn’s disease that Crohn’s is such a tricky disease and I think every case is different. I am very lucky that I have very… what they tell me is a mild case, even though when you are having it, it doesn’t feel very mild to you.
It’s hard to find doctors that really understand you because they are not feeling the pain and they can’t even imagine the pain that you can be in. But they tell me I have a mild case. So, particularly my case, it’s just a very hard disease to figure out what’s happening and it can travel throughout your entire intestinal tract, which is quite large. It moves so it can pop up on this side or it can pop up, up here or it can pop up in your eyes or in your mouth, Crohn’s, and you get things on your legs and your arms. It just invades your whole body.
So, the question was about my particular disease. Just for everybody it’s so different, everybody’s case is so different but my particular disease is very mild and as I mentioned, I am on very limited medication at the moment, very minor, non-toxic drugs.
