    I am going to try to make this short.....


    Wondering if anyone has any insight. Without getting too deep, I have rheumatoid arthritis, my first cousin has Crohn's disease.  So, my daughter is having lots of gastrointestinal problems, including blood in her stool and, now, my youngest daughter just started having these same problems, including blood in her stool, also. Their symptoms seem to be the same as in Crohn's disease.....


    Question...anyone have the RA and Crohn's connection?? Just wondering, I know that autoimmune diseases run in families.
