      It absolutely can. That's actually what gave me my flare ups in the first place, stress.

      100%. I don’t have any sources off the top of my head, but anecdotally, stress will often worsen my symptoms

      Yep, everytime I have exams I have a flare up a week later, but I also stress eat but yeah stress is normally felt in the stomach so it will make it worse unfortunately

"Yes, stress can definitely contribute to flares of Crohn's disease. Not only for primary reasons, but we also tend to not take care of ourselves when we’re stressed (bad food choices, lack of sleep, no water etc)."
