about three weeks ago I developed a sinus and bronchial infection. Got on antibiotics. My crohn's symptoms stayed about the same as always. But the day after I got off the anti-bs I got a wicked stomach virus that lasted for three days. Now that it's gone it seems to have made my crohn's symptoms tempoararily better. Actually having one of those really rare painless weeks. I have a theory that since my body had so much to attack it quit attacking itself for awhile.  Anybody experience this? Is my argument realistic?
 
Thanks.

you could be on to something there. I have found some relief with the old gut while fighting a bad cold or sinus infection. Maybe there is just so much the body can fight at one time and the troops are pulled away to fight the new invader.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

I'm just hoping the troops don't set up a hostile puppet goverment after the invaders leave! If my metaphor isn't very clear, I hope my immune system doesn't rev up worse than before and keep fighting itself even harder after it kills the virus!

That is so weird.  In December 2008 I got a fungul pnemonia and liver infection.  My Crohn's disappeared for almost 2 months, and I was taking no meds for it.  It was such a blessing as I was so sick with everything else!

bronchitis likely viral. antibiotics do very little to treat a virus. antihistamine clears mucus, altho you mite get response with an antibiotic on allergen or allergic reaction. Thus you killed good bacteria in digestive tract and now have stomach symptoms. just my opinion. so what was the name of the antibiotic that you didnt need to take as you didnt mention it.

The anti was for the sinus infection and it was just moxicillin. yeah, i'm no fan of antib's but i also eat my homemade yogurt to counteract. the stomach issue is something going around to everyone in my office. it lasted about 3 days thankfully gone now.
