I wonder if people with crohns usually have gastritis? or acid reflux and IBS?

GERD, gastroesophageal reflux disease, is quite common in people that have CD. It is most prevalent in people that have small bowel and/or disease in the terminal ileum. My GI explained that my GERD was likely most related to a type of backwash scenario from my TI inflammation. MY GERD was at its worse when my CD was flaring. I even had gastric bleeding and lots of inflammation. Is this something you are having trouble with? I take Prevacid and mine is mostly under control with the Prevacid.

Gerds is not unusual for Crohn's. The stomach is a part of the common GI immune system and inflammation in the intestines commonly results in inflammation in the stomach and GERDs is one result. I knew about my GERDs for years before they diagnosed Crohn's.

I have had GERD issues for quite some time, but a few years ago, I was having episodes of gastritis that they couldn't find the cause of. I still have them, but not nearly as frequently, and not to the same extent now that I can spot the initial warning signs. I was in and out of the hospital about 8 times in 10 months, lost about 60lbs and never could figure out why. They did every test imaginable, even transfering me by ambulance to another hospital for a test that was only available there. I take my Prevacid every day and if it gets really bad, I go on a liquid diet for a few days and things calm down.

CD 20 years officially, 30 unofficially. 3 resections '93, '95 '97
Managing with strict low residue diet, keeping symptoms to a minimum. All test show small amount of ulceration, still have occasional blockages. But still have a great time with my 2 daughters and husband!

Prednisone, 6MP,Prevacid, B12 shots, Bentyl, Xifaxan.....

I just found out a week ago from my endoscopy that I have pretty bad gastritis. Not sure for me if it's just part of my Crohn's or if it was from the 6mp that I was taking that really disagreed with me. I've started taking protonix to try to help.

I am with IDES on this one. I take Prilosec daily to keep under it control.
