    Could this be Crohns?

    My husband has been sick for about a month now. He has diarrhea goes 4 or 5 times a day. He says there is mucus in his stool. Has no appetite. So he eats very little. There are some days he does not eat anything. He is drinking. He has bad pain and cramps in his stomach. All he does is sleep all the time. Last week his lips swelled up like a balloon. That went away in 2 days. Im getting worried.

    How long has your husband had these symptoms?

    ASAP...the first thing would be for him to have stool testing done for gastro invaders.
    Secondly, some people have had only gastro issues with Covid-19, so best to at least be checked for that as well.

    Could it be UC or CD...maybe, but he needs to have other possibilities crossed off the list first. M
