The Great October Mystery..
After reading about this mystery on another forum.. i took notice of my Crohns related symptoms and flare-up symptoms of others were happening on or around October. What is it about this month? Any theories?
Here's a few theories Ive found so far:
Some say its because we tend to feel a bit depressed as the days become shorter and darker around OCTOBER. Maybe unrecognized winter-depression (caused by too few light). Some research has been done on the relation of light and the mind.
someone else said:
They think that it is due to the stuffy noses and sinus problems that people usually get around this time of year since a large portion of the mucus drains right down into intestinal tract. A doctor said that the stomach can not digest mucus, so the stomach produces more and more acid which aggravates Crohn's.
