NASAL SORES R US...
I'm new to the site as of this moment.
Having just read the list of comments posted about nasal sores and Crohn's, I want to quickly share with you my diag-noses. Ha! No pun intended.
In 1982 I was first diagnosed with "acute severe ulcerative colitis".
After a number of debilitating episodes requiring long hospitalizations, TPN, blood transfusions and drug experiments, I managed to get the colitis under control with lifestyle changes I will explain later, not tonight.
My reason for writing today is that I too have suffered with these nasal sores that flare and subside, each flare different, some very aggressive, painful and spreading over larger areas inside the nose, and out. The sores show up in my mouth. These nasal and mouth sores plus other symptoms and illnesses including arthritis eventually led to a diagnosis in 1998 of Primary Lupus with Secondary Sjogren's. Some of you may find answers researching these terms.
It's after 3am and I must shut down for the night.
Bless you all and thank you for sharing your stories. Very helpful and appreciated. To be continued...
