It might be a good idea to revise the survey and add Crohn's with depression (or other mood disorder?). Most of us suffer in that way too.

ivy6,
I would revise the survey if I knew how to without starting over. Depression and being sick all of the time go hand in hand. It just never occured to me to add that.

most of my stuff is listed in my sig. for an explanation on oral allergy syndrome it is an autoimmune diseae where my body thinks I am ingesting pollen rather than that fruit or veggie. I only have true food allergies to tree nuts which I grew into 1sst was cashews (that was discovered pre-CD by appearance of hives around my mouth). then labwork Dx peanut allergies in me which I hadnt had before that was 06. If the fruits or veggies that I have issues with are cooked to the point that I can smush them with a spoon I wont get the anaphalactic reaction.
Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984.

I have Crohns (duh), significant GERD to the point where I might need surgery, suspected lactose intollerance and IBS but I blame both on crohns, mild situational anxiety (basically anywhere there is no bathroom...another duh) and an allergy to Red Dye number 40 and Strawberries.
26 Year old married female law student.  Diagnosed w/ CD 3 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD.  I am sort of lactose intollerant too but can handle anything cultured and do well w/ lactose pills and lactaid.  For crohns I am currently on Pentasa 4 pills/4x day and hysociamine prn.  I also have bad acid reflux and have been on PPI's since age 13.  I have been through prilosec, prevacid, and nexium.  Currently I am on Protonix in the morning and Zantac at night.  I alos take a birth control pill to allow some fun in my life.

I have Crohns and severe asthma and allergies. They don't compare to some of the other ailments many of these board members deal with, but I do spend an enormous amt of time and money treating them and it affects my quality of life significantly to not be able to breathe.

My asthma is only under control when I'm on high doses of steroids for the Crohns.
