This forum is incredible....all these years I have been thinking "I must be a hypocondriac, no one could have so many weird things wrong with them!" Then, I find this site and am starting to realize...after all these years that all of it must in some way be related to the Crohn's. My Crohn's is in the terminal illeium also. I do take prilosec, but some times I still get this lump in my throat. Sometimes it lasts a day, sometimes it lasts several days. Years ago, when this started (Amieee's ? got me thinking back) my GI prescribed, lidocaine (sp?). You take a spoonful and swallow it. It completely numbs everything on the way down, a little scary because I did not feel anything. But, I could eat again. At that time it was so bad that I was not eating anything solid because it was so bad. Anyway, I love this site and have discovered no question is too strange to ask; probably someone else has the same question. Thanks All!
