Crohn's disease and balance issues - is there a connection?

Posted by @gillyk14, Apr 20, 2015

Hi, I,m new to site, so thanks for having me! I have Crohn’s diseas since 25 yrs age. Am now 66. No real bad problems with it as such in my older years. food,sensitivity to high fibre which creates spasms and discomfort. But need to ask about possible connection with something I,ve developed,4 years ago e, Vertigo/balance problems. it would seem to be a kind of Vestibular problem and have had various ,treatments’ that basically involve VRT exercises (drugs either did not work or made worse), but these do not help at all. I have noticed that when my gut is playing up, it exacerbates my vertigo symptoms and when I asked my Gastro consultant here in London at Barts why this is he said It is probably due to the central nervous system, as in it is all connected.,,He doesn,t seem to be very au fait with the vestibular side of things though, so I wondered if anyone could shine a light on this connection as I am desperate for an answer to this problem which has quite frankly messed up my life as it also creates extreme exhaustion. many thanks..

Hi @gillyk14, we’re not able to provide specific treatment recommendations online, but I have reached out to one of Mayo Clinic’s physicians in hopes of providing some additional information. I should have an update for you soon!

Hi, thank you. no quite understand. I am more wanting info on any
connection and experiences of others, and if any have found relief with any
treatments they have had that I may not know about. there seems to be very
little knowledge on vestibular problems in he UK and a lot is based on
guesswork, so just wanted to lok at the connection of central nervous
system. Will look forward to any helpful Input? thanks
