I have the same thing as terry73 cd related mouth ulcers and tongue leasion, that go down my throat, for me very painful when its bad in my throat swallowing water is like swallowing glass. my gi put me on pred. and IMuran. helps a little but side effects are equally bad. so none of it is good, so bad for me I'm on state disability, applying for ssdi. permanent disability
I was on LTD from work until sept when they decided that i can return to work as there is a bathroom at work so that solves my crohns disease problem. I haven't returned cause im sick all the time and a bathroom does NOT solve all my problems. I live in Canada our federal disability is Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D). Ufortunately i just got my letter this week that i was denied so i now have to go see a lawyer and see my options (i have been off work since sept 2007). Did you have these problems or does the states rec crohn's as a disabiling disease?????????? Did you have to fight for benefits too?????
ya i had sores so bad down my throat the swelling was so bad i could hardly breath i was put on 100mg pred and luckily it worked cause if it didn't they were admitting me to intabate me. Ya hurts like hell but its a good excuse to send hubby out for ice cream lol, check with your dentist if the sores are reachable (more in your mouth) they can use a laser on them and it will speed the healing up on them immensely and be careful i mine once became infected and abcessed NOT GOOD hurt like H E double hockey sticks and omg did my face swell looked like rocky - to prevent this or if you think it is ever starting you can rinse with peroxide (dont swallow and yes tastes like crap but hey were use to all those crappy preps lol) but it helped clear it up fast the fistule and all.
