Loss of appetite?

Can anyone comment if loss of appetite occurs during your flares? It’s a symptom I am struggling with. Not yet diagnosed, but Crohns is a possibility. I’m not avoiding eating to avoid pain, either, just not hungry! TIA.
Hi, yes definitely! Losing my appetite, nausea and pain are the main symptoms of a flare for me, bathroom stuff less often. Very tough to eat much at all, I usually force down bananas and ensure or wait it out with fluids. Hope u are able to figure out what is causing your issues. It sucks not knowing what you have yet. Good luck
