I am 46 and in the process of being diagnosed. I have had my regular MD tell me he thinks it is Chrons. I have had sever abdominal cramps. Bleeding (for years) diarreha (for years) was diagnosed by a gastroenterologist 4 years ago with IBS, but the IBS meds have never seemed to work for me. I think I have had symptoms for about 20 years.

25, diagnosed at 25, who knows how long I have had symptoms! (I have had 'episodes' before, but always attributed it to food intolerances since they would typically only last a few hours).

30, had a dozen tests including endoscopy, and colonoscopy and the GI said I don't have crohn's. Yet I have mouth sores, swollen joints in my right hand, massive weight loss, nausea, ya know the usual,beginning to think the Doc's here fell asleep during the Crohn's segment of their training. Have had "Crohn's" like symptoms since I was 8.

I am 30 yrs old, diagnosed at age 28. Symptoms since I was 16 yrs old

Is the late 20's the time they are seeing this? Seems like alot of people were in their late 20's when they were diagnosed..kinda scary!!

I'm 48. Had first abdominal scan at 18 with minor sypmtoms. Next 15 years problems were contributed to female issues and alcoholism. At age 33 had first abnormal colonoscopy, but was not officially dx'd until I was 43, 3 weeks after partial hystorectomy. Over 10 years I was treated for unknown arthritic symptoms, erythema nodosum, and skin irritations, all of which I have since learned are side effects of Crohn's. Who knew? Apparently none of my doctors.

All my meds are pertaining to surgery healing and stress.
