Inflammatory Bowel Disease (Kids Health)
When was the last time you had a stomachache? It’s normal for all kids to get bellyaches once in a while. But some kids get bad stomach pain all the time. They are tired and even feel like they might throw up. Some of these kids may have inflammatory bowel disease (or IBD).
Having Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis may be difficult to handle at times. You can have times when you feel okay, but sometimes having IBD can make you feel ill, confused and miserable. Most young people with IBD experience at least some of these feelings.
