Before my diagnosis, I started out with Erethum Nodosum (red painful knots on my legs) and then inflammation in my eyes, both of them! One right after the other, at first my eyes felt kinda sore and my vision started getting blurry. My eye dr gave a name for it but I can't remember what it is called, he gave me steriod drops and something to keep my eyes dialated! This lasted 2 months!! It does take a while to clear up, shortly after the eye problem started I started having the diareaha and the pains. My eye dr is the one who sent me to my pcp for a complete check up and then was referred to my GI.
I had some eye problems before diagnosis that makes me wonder if CD was causing it? I also had some special drops and my eyes would get so sore and inflamed. It was terrible!
