Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis are inflammatory bowel diseases that share many symptoms: stomach pain, cramping, the need to always be near a bathroom. The two conditions may seem similar, but in truth, they're quite different and require different treatments. And because they can often be tricky to tell apart, some patients suffer symptoms for years before they find relief.
