25 years before getting the diagnosis
Last updated: December 2022
I've been dealing with Crohn's symptoms since I was 15 y/o and it took almost 25 years to take me seriously. When I moved to York PA from Philadelphia, PA , the GI Doctor I have didn't give up on me and did everything to get to the source. Last year I got the news that I have Crohn's. I had Doctor's tell me to my face the I was seeking drugs to get high. After getting the diagnosis my GI went right to work on treatments and I've had an up and down battle but at least I have the answers I've been looking for for 25 years.
What has been the most helpful for managing IBD symptoms?
