Crohn's disease affects the lining of the digestive tract, causing severe diarrhea and abdominal pain. It can also spread deep into the intestinal lining and surrounding tissue. In very severe cases Crohn's disease can be life threatening.
Like Crohn's, ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that can cause chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. For many sufferers, the symptoms can affect the ability to manage day-to-day tasks, care for one's family or maintain employment. Our attorneys are committed to helping clients with ulcerative colitis obtain the financial assistance they need.
Symptoms of Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis include:
- Stomach cramping
- Abdominal pain
- Blood in stool
- Reduced appetite or weight loss
- Fever and fatigue
Medical treatment to document your ailment
When you suffer from a debilitating physical ailment, it is important to seek medical treatment as soon as possible. Seeking appropriate medical treatment allows you to get the professional diagnosis you need to establish a medical history to document your condition. Even after you seek assistance from a medical professional, you should continue to keep track of how the condition affects your life. Write down details about how severe your pain is, how much time you must spend in the bathroom and whether or not you suffer incontinence. This documentation will be an asset in presenting your case to the court.
