I'm just wondering because I keep getting an unclear answer to whether I have UC or Crohn's and I just had an Upper GI, SBFT to check for Crohn's and I found out it came back normal except for reflux from the GI's nurse.  I will be speaking with my GI on April 10th but I was just wondering what you guys have to say....

I think it is pretty common. I take 60 mg of Prilosec everyday. Mine didn't start till later on in my Crohns life, but its there, and under control now.
Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.
