(Crohn's disease) In Crohn's disease, any part of your small or large intestine can be involved, and it may be continuous or may involve multiple segments. In some people, the disease is confined to the colon, which is part of large intestine. Signs and symptoms of Crohn's disease can range from mild to severe. Follow up with your doctor if you have diarrhea, fever, fatigue, abdominal pain/cramping, blood in your stool, mouth sores, reduced appetite and weight loss, pain or drainage near or around the anus due to inflammation from a tunnel into the skin. You can also have inflammation of skin, eyes and joints, inflammation of liver or bile ducts, kidney stones, or iron deficiency (anemia).
