stress causes crohns

by simon

Hello from Mr S. how I came to have crones , I was working at a job , earning a wage, wife kids mortgage, normal type life.

Owner decides to modify pay plans which he thinks is great , after 3 months and a losss in wages , owner decides to modify pay plans again, needless to say stress level goes way up when your income destroyed , and I was ranked in the top 10 for Gm , that right General motors.

I believe that stress is the cause of Crones , but hey who am I . Let modify pay plans again, another drop in income , my stress level is through the roof, going to the washroom every hour. It got worse as time and stress level increased. This happened before the economy crashed ,so it is not related to that, after 4 different pay plans ,and a 25 %drop in pay , full blown Crones is diagnosed. needless to say i left the great GM. and was offered a job at a 20%increase to were I was . I believe that the cause of crones is stress, I would love to here fro a mother to see if they have the same opinion.

Causes of Crohn's Disease
by: Inna

Thank you so much for sharing your story.

It's not proven that stress causes Crohn's. But stress can absolutely make it worse or make it flare-up.

It could be even physical stress not just emotional. Yes, I had flare-ups from the job related stress and I had flare-ups pregnancy realated.

That's why it's so important to stay a little more ahead of the game. You can not avoid stress but you can do Yoga, breathing exercises, meditation, light exercises, etc.

Yes, I do think that stress contributes to worsening of Crohn's disease symptoms.

All the best to you and good luck at your new job.
