I'm not as far into Crohn's as you, but still after 5 years of all the symptoms, I just started heartburn about
two months ago. It was the first time I'd felt that since the last month of pregnancy! I tried a two week course of Prilosec and it made a huge difference. I still have a couple days left, so I am curious what will happen when I am done with the course. But, for now it's great to lose the additional discomfort of the heartburn.
I am/was really sad to have it to deal with too. I am just keeping my fingers crossed that the Prilosec works and it does not relapse. The other stuff/symptoms are plenty enough!
