They told me I had crohn's disease in April. I have been on 3 pentasa pills in the morning and 3 in the evening. At first I was feeling better because I didn't have that much ulcers coming into my mouth and also I notices pee more which I use to not do that much. But now been getting ulcers all in my mouth had it so far for month and half and also sores down there too. I don't know how I should bring this up to my doctor . Or is there anything do for it ? Last time I was there they test my blood see if I had any inflamed stuff going on in my body I think it was normal because they didn't call me about it. I will know more because I go to the doctor in Jan. I was wondering if I should bring up to my new doctor that I see next week? The last time I ask my new doctor about something told me ask my gasoligist about it. He really didn't have that much to say. Just put me on nexium because I would get nausa and throwing up. I still up chuck in my mouth though.




I take pentasa so far 6 a day, nexium, thyroid med, iron, vitamin, birth control

You should write down all of your symptoms and tell your doctor. Have your doc get you into you gastro or a rhuemy as soon as possible-the prescribing physician is the one that is going to make the decisions about increases and it sounds like you are ready either to introduce a new med or to increase your curent dose.
Hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for the support. Only problem is sometimes when talk to my gastro I feel like doesn't take me seriously. Last time we talk he said change my medicine but he didn't want to do that because they cause harmful side effects and stuff. He said that isn't a road wants go down with me.

Hi I would consider getting a new Gi doctor it sounds like your doctor does listen to you.
Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital

Yes-new doctor. If your doctor doesn't take you seriously he should not be taking your money. Go to someone who listens to you and who has a similar idea of how you should manage your illness (similar to your own I mean).
