Just came back from post colonoscopy appointment. I don't have Crohn's but have erosive Ileitis, which is a chronic auto immune system disease, same as psoriasis. Doctor says not uncommon to get other auto immune problems. I did ask if it could be have been kick started by having COVID vaccine. He says other people have asked that and there's not enough info at thus time to be sure. He did say it mostly develops in 20-30 year old people and in 68. Do of course, put on 2 medications to calm the inflammation. Maybe it'll clear up my psoriasis along the way.

I submitted my DNA to one of those test sites and I have inherited the gene that makes me susceptible to Crohns. I'm not sure if it relates to psoriasis, but it's possible. I had two doses of the Pfizer and I was a little fatigued for a week after the first one.
