I have a canker sore and my throat has been sore the last few days. Is it the CD? I'm still taking the omeprazole for my throat but I missed 2 days of all my meds this last week (too exhausted to take them) so I'm guessing it is CD related *shrug*
Diagnosed with UC in February 2009.
Diagnosed with Crohn's Colitis December 2009.
Flaring since October 2008
Possible Rheumatoid Arthritis

Medication: Pentasa 6x daily, Imuran 50 mg, multivitamin, Vit B12 1 g, omeprazole. Sulfasalazine

I would guess that it from missing the meds. If I miss even one day of my GERD medication I pay for it the next day.

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 agree with Zanne, I can't miss my meds are it takes me days to get back to my normal. Good luck!

Mouth, throat, ulcers are totally Crohn's related-- keep in mind it's from oral to anal...

My solution, having just had a few: Vitamin E capsules. Get the Vite E derived from various sources, Natural Factors makes a cheep one.

I chew the caps, spitting out the gelatin once the vite E is in my mouth. 1 cap 3x's / day until it clears, took me 3 days and then I kept it up for another 2 days to be sure.

Vite E is great for healing the mouth, including swollen gums.

I also used it when an ulcer showed up on the skin bordering my fistula. Worked like a charm.
CD 24 years. Multiple surgeries in past 10 yrs. 4 year Illeostomy. Mesh rejection. Too close to death, twice. Large inscisional hernia. Perpetually underweight. Short bowel syndrom. Have used a variety of complementary medical therapies. Highly recommend Bowen Therapy as the best body work. Take me vites. Started Low Dose Naltrexone March 27, 2010. Got married for the only time 2008. Survive because of the love of good friends, and because I can. Happy to be alive. IBD needs more awareness and more voices willing to speak up. BE well.
