Hi @johnbishop. Thank you on the posting guidance and the article. I really appreciate it.

May 3, 2019 · Crohn's Disease - does cannabis help? in Digestive Health

Hi!
I am a 41 year old female, dx with Crohn’s in 2016 after a two-week affair of chronic diarrhea and nausea, with subsequent dehydration, weight loss, fatigue. Colonoscopy did show chronic ulcerations. Prior to that event, I had irregular BM’s, but nothing significant. Since my diagnosis, I have chronic abdominal bloating, abdominal pain, fatigue, no diarrhea, fatigue, have GAINED 20 lbs. I am on Pentasa and take various supplements. I recently had labs done, and there are a few directing to malnutrition, yet I cannot lose weight!

I also have early onset disc dysplagia in lumbar/sacral spine. I am active and live a healthy life. I am not certain Crohn’s is the correct dx, especially with the absence of chronic diarrhea and constpation. Does anyone have any feedback or advice? I am at a loss and wonder if I have something else going on.

Thank you!
