• Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes. We invite you to join us.


I'm Nicola, I live in Wales in the UK and I was diagnosed with Crohns disease when I was 19 after nearly 5 years of unexplained symptoms. I also have coeliac disease, arthritis, cluster headaches, asthma and osteopenia. I have a wonderful fiance who is very supportive which does make things easier to cope with. I have two pet guinea pigs (small fluffy animals, not farm pigs lol), I like to paint and sketch and I have recently started to play the flute again after being gifted one as a birthday present. I come and go on here a lot due to the cluster headaches, so my posts aren't as frequent as they once were but my inbox is always open should you need a non-judgemental ear and you don't feel confident posting openly.
