idea  So how many of us get mouth sores. I've had a few from time to time but they always have been in the roof of my mouth. The ones i have now are on the upper gum and very sore. Can we always blame these type of issues on crohn's or would i get them if i didn't have crohn's.I'm thinking my crohn's is in remission but sometimes i wonder due to all the pain i feel in my muscles and joints how do we really know? I never seem to have the ulcers in my mouth when i have an appt. with my drs. So would you consider yourself in remission while having mouth ulcers and joint/muscle pain?

Well, my GI considers me in remission because I'm not having any intestinal symptoms and the CTent I had in Jan. shows no active disease. BUT, I do still get mouth sores, ulcers and I bet you that the CD in my esophagus is active. Oh how I miss Remicade..............

Hello, as lamb61 my GI also tells me that I am in remission since I am not having any(well almost) intestinal symptoms and blood tests are "ok". But I still get a lot mouth sores in all over it, specially in my tongue and in the inner part of my lips, sometimes is very hard to eat! I wonder what is true remission, because, ok I do not have the big D 10 times a day anymore, but the joint pain and the sores are still here as a ghost!!
