    The problem here is that it just isn’t Crohn’s Disease that causes these problems in patients. I have always thought that I have CD, but the evidence isn’t there. I have pancolitis and I can tell you that I feel the same way CD patients feel. My quality of life is poor and I am always in pain. Maybe they need to broaden this study a bit to include all forms of IBD.

    I resent the word perception in this article. Those of us that have CD are reacting to a disease that causes many effects, most notably pain. When anyone is in pain there will be anxiety or stress! That isn’t perceived but real, unless you are a masochist
