Symptoms: Crohn's Colitis

Crohn's colitis occurs when the disease affects the colon. The symptoms for Crohn's colitis depends on whether the disease occurs in the right side of the colon, the left side, the whole colon, and whether the rectum is affected. If the disease occurs mostly on the right side, the patient will have mainly cramps and diarrhea. If the disease is mostly on the left side or involves most of the colon, the patient will likely have cramps, diarrhea, and some blood in the stool. When the rectum is involved, the patient may have symptoms similar to ulcerative colitis, with false urges to defecate.
