Anyone here ever get mouth sores on their soft palate that hurt so bad you feel like you are getting a sore throat?   
Also when I get them, I sometimes feel like I am "coming down" with something.  Can anyone relate?
Thanks a bunch!

There have been other posts about this problem and I think we all get them. I take lysine when I get them and they go away quickly. There were some other suggestions so I am sure that others will post them.

Oh yeah...when my CD used to flare so did the mouth sores [aphthous ulcers]. Some people actually get ulceration with granulation in the mouth just like that seen in the intestines. These ulcers are different in nature.

I used to get them quite frequently on the roof of my mouth and they did hurt...I no longer get them since taking primadophilus reuteri probiotics daily.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Yes! Before I was on Humira, I got them so very badly for years and years. I used to get them way at the back of my throat or even down my throat. They hurt so much and you really couldn't put anything on them there. At least the ones on the gums or under the tongue I could ease with Kenalog. Sorry you are going through this. The pain of those are awful.

I get them on my gums after a really bad flare and i swish mouth wash to help numb the sores, it does sting a bit but it really helps numb them so im not as 'aware' of them lol......mostly so i don't try to pop or burst them......but i only get around a half dozen at a time so i figure its not too bad

I have them as well and they can be quiet sore at times,the one thing that I have used to help with the is a mix of mylanta and mouth wash the helps to ease the pain up and in my case it helps them to heal as well.I hope you get some relief from them.

I have 2 right now and one of them is on my soft palate. I am almost useless. Everytime I yawn the tissue stretches. It is incredibly painful and doctors don't think you need pain meds for these. I know it would take something strong because I've tried milder pain meds in the past (i.e. darvocet) and they only help a little Tylenol is useless. I haven't had bad mouth ulcers in a long time so this is very discouraging. When I used to get them years ago my pcp at that time gave me a steroid rinse which did help heal them but then I got to using it on a daily basis and that isn't so great.

And yes, indigosunrise, when I have them I do feel sick.

I've been struggling with these for a while now. I've found a prescription cream that helps tons. It's called aphthasol. It cuts the healing time and also the pain. Great stuff... I get mine from my dentist, but I am sure a GI would prescribe it.

Has anyone heard of the sores not only effecting the mouth but also the lips? My lips would occasionally swell and turn really painful the year leading up to my Crohn's diagnosis. I would usually have a mouth sore or two also. Now, my lips only swell slightly and the pain is minimal.

Welcome Junco!

That sounds painful!  I myself haven't had sores on the outside of my lips but the corners of my mouth will crack (but I think that is probably from something different). 

I am sure someone on here will be able to answer that for you!

Take care and keep in touch!
