Crohn’s flare-ups: cause & effect

Crohn’s flare-ups are a sudden intensification of the disease’s symptoms and can occur when the body’s immune system gets triggered. The most common Crohn’s-related symptoms include:

  • Abdominal cramps
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Rectal pain
  • Joint pain
  • Rashes

Treatments aim to reduce the level of inflammation in the body. Typically, when inflammation reduction is achieved, symptoms go into remission. With proper follow-up care, patients may be able to stay in remission for extended periods of time.

If left untreated

Left untreated, Crohn’s flare-ups can worsen and lead to additional problems. It is best to treat a flare-up as soon as possible while keeping stress levels low, as the anxiety of a flare-up can exacerbate symptoms.

  • They brought everything you would see in an emergency room, but the emergency room was our bedroom! They set up an IV. They knew what they were doing. And they were very personable. We never felt rushed. And the insurance covered it all. We didn’t have to pay a dime.

  • I wasn’t sure if I should go to the ER. My doctor recommended DispatchHealth. It’s great for people like me who have COPD and other health issues. They tested my blood, ran COVID and flu tests, and even gave me IV fluids. Before leaving they sent a prescription to my pharmacy.

  • They did the ultrasound right there with my Dad on the bed. Didn’t have to go to the emergency room or anything. And the results went straight to his doctor. Very professional, just seamless. And they were very caring and compassionate.

  • It was wonderful to know that someone would come to the house within a few hours. Every experience we’ve had with them has been excellent. Whenever they leave, they know how grateful we are that they came to our house and helped us.
