I have had Crohn's for 50 years with mild symptons during that time and a severe attack\flare once a year. I am 75 and whenever I exercise even slightly I have a flare-up.
Exercise even slightly: my recent flare was caused by pumping iron (25lb range) for 20 minutes and 10 minutes on an elliptical machine going slowly.
Flare-up: diarrhea and vomiting for 24 hours followed by a slow recovery.
My doc says it is due to irritating the scar tissue in my intestine.
Anyone out there have a similar problem?
