I have not had problems with my liver either but I've definitely had the mouth sores. But because Crohn's is an autoimmune illness, it can affect ANYTHING within your body - which is the frustrating part. Yes, Crohn's is characterized by inflammation and the immune system attacking the GI tract (mouth to anus) but when the immune system is whacked out, other body functions can weaken, too, like the liver.
For me, my ankles swell to the size of oranges when I'm in a flare. Can't walk or drive for around 2 weeks. It has taken 5 years for any doctor to acknowledge that the swollen feet are a direct result of the inflammation from the Crohn's. Now when my feet swell, my GP doesn't want me to go see him...he wants me to go to my GI.
Crohn's can present itself in very unique manners. My GI treats a Crohn's patient who has no problems intestinally (colonoscopy has come out clean for years) but because of the extra-intestinal symptoms he presented and the bloodwork, he was finally diagnosed with Crohn's. Crazy, huh?
