In brief: Moreso
Pain, frequent bms, nighttime bms, joint pains, skin rash, eye pain, fever, weight loss, bleeding.
These can be seen in infectious diarrhea (usually short-lived), but more commonly seen in ibd, especially if recurrent, or lasting for more than a few days. Got any of these symptoms? See your doc...Soon.
