In the last year, I've been on the same meds. I'm still getting D after almost every meal and sharp pain sometimes after eating which is different to the abdominal cramps associated with D.
Since I figure my symptoms are pretty much as good as it's going to get, I haven't seen my GI doc in 9 months. Maybe not the attitude to have but I'm so tired of the tests etc.
In the past few months, however, I've been getting a lot of very painful mouth ulcers and this has brought me back to the question of whether it's Crohn's Disease I have since mouth ulcers can be a symptom.
My mother has Crohn's and has been in remission for years now. Hers was an unusual case since it was her stomach that was effected.
This was one of the first things that was ruled out when I first had the endoscopy/colonoscopy two years ago. I have since had another endoscopy a year ago (see link) and the dialation seems to have helped a lot with my reflux/dysphagia.
Has anyone been diagnosed with IBS and later Crohns? My husband (who is a physician, but not GI) thinks that I may be experiencing symptoms of the early stages of Crohn's or a mild case of it.
