Urgent diarrhoea is one of the most common and debilitating symptoms of Crohn's and Colitis. A major anxiety for people living with the condition is being refused access to toilets or being confronted about using a 'disabled' toilet. Whilst someone may appear to look ‘okay’ on the outside, they may be in a daily battle with the condition and urgently need to use a toilet whilst out in public.
