In brief: Blockage

Crohn's causes a segmental inflammation usually of the small bowel which can lead to obstruction, diarrhea, and significant discomfort and inflammation.
If you have this condition you must be under the guidance of a GI specialist as there is effective therapy for this condition which can otherwise be uncomfortable and sometimes very dangerous.
