Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength
Diagnosed with severe Crohn's colitis in May 2005. I deal with daily arthritis ALL over my body, cystic acne, & fibromyaglia. Have taken Imuran, Remicade, TPN, Colozal, Entocort, Flagyl, PamineForte, Cipro, Dicyclomine, Prednisone, Asacol, Prevacid, and the list goes on. Currently on Remicade every 4wks, 20mg Pred, Asacol, 75mg Imuran, etc.
I have wondered about this too. How do they diagnose crohn's of the upper gi tract? (mouth, throat etc)
Do they bother to diagnose it if you have chrohn's in the lower gi tract and they are treating you for that? I get mouth ulcers but not the severe type that some people describe (really deep) Sometimes my mouth and throat burns. Could this be crohn's? I plan to ask the gi office about this when I see them in december.
