Symptoms: Crohn's Stomach/Duodenum

Many patients do not experience and symptoms when Crohn's disease affects these areas. Inflammation is often discovered only by chance. Those patients that have symptoms usually feel pain or discomfort in the upper abdomen that occur during or after a meal. Some patients (about 30 percent) complain about nausea, vomiting, or both. Weight loss occurs in over 50 percent of people with symptoms as a result of the tendency to eat less in order to avoid symptoms. Sometimes Crohn's disease of the duodenum is similar to ordinary duodenal ulcer disease, in which case eating may relieve pain.

Some patients will have scarring that narrows the outlet of the stomach, if Crohn's disease affects the stomach or duodenum. The patient may complain of not being able to eat a normal size meal, have prolonged full or bloated feelings in the upper abdomen after meals, nausea, and a decrease in appetite.
