Weather and Crohn's
(north east Ohio)
I have a question and I would like some feedback. I have had Crohn's for 10 years now. My attacks would come and go over the years. I think the longest I would stay active with out getting it under control was 8 weeks. I just moved to Ohio and it is very cold with lots of snow. Since I moved I my Crohn's is out of control now. I have been hospitalized for it. I had not been hospitalized since 1996 when they found it. The point I am trying to get to is this... My new GI doctor said that it was weather related. I had never heard of this. I have been told it is a auto immune disorder. So is my new doc crazy or is there some merit to what he is saying? Has anyone heard of this?
