Hello all
Im Mollys mum and I luckily have not needed to visit for a while, anyway Molly been doing fairly well for the last few months which is great because she is just being a normal kid, however she has just started having little wetting herself accidents (cant think of another way to put it) Molly is 12 by the way so this is not a normal thing, she says she just cant stop it, has anybody experienced anything like this before.
ANother question has anybody experienced any problems with their teeth, Molly gets lots of mouth ulcers which are as you all know part and parcel of CD but also she seems to need fillings in her teeth and then when she has them her mouth becomes even more sore
Hope someone can help
Molly's Mum x

She may have a urinary tract infection, which can cause this.  A simple urine sample given at the doctor's office can detect this.  Just a suggestion. As far as the teeth/mouth sores, I'm not sure..... Take care, Julie

Hi Moll's Mom Have you had her glucose checked mine is up from the pred. and I have noticed a little urine escapeing at times lately. If she was on pred. and getting too much sugar it would have effected her teeth. I am having some dental problems but not alot. Not sure what to do about the mouth what has the Dr. recommended for that? So glad she is doing good otherwise. lol gail

I get sores on my tongue that look like litlte ulcers or something. They hurt and bother the heck out of me. The only thing I have found that gives me relief is denture cream medicine in the toothpaste aisle at the store. I think it numbs it and lets me leave it alone to heal. Something to try.


Started having issues in '92; lived with it until October '05 when I had a constant low grade fever for 3 months. CT scan showed Ulcerative Colitis. Capsule Endoscopy, Colonoscopy and upper GI November '05 gave diagnosis of Crohn's and GERD. I have ulcers from my mouth to my bottom and have had fissures/fistulas. Tried Prednisone, Azasan, Asacol and others with no improvement. Started Remicade infusions February 2006. Doing better but still don't feel 100%.

I wonder... Did she just start middle school? Ask her if she goes while at school. My daughter did the same thing and I found out she was trying to hold it till she got home. Didn't want to go in the bathroom at school. I don't know if all the usual horror stories got to her. Or maybe was afraid of being late. Kids can think strange things sometimes.

I have mouth sores all the time! Have had them since 12 or so. I think it's def related to CD.
Diagnosed with CD in Jan 07 after going to different doctors for fissures or what I thought were hemmeroids. After getting a colonoscopy they found out I had Crohns. I had no idea what the hell CD was, but once I read up on it, realized I've had mild symptoms since age 12. I'm now 19.
I have mild to moderate CD, and don't have many symptoms other than my 3 fissures, stomach pain after eating, diarreah, bloating, cramping, gastritis on occasion, and then other random health issues that are caused from CD like gingivitis for example.
I'm currently on Cipro and Entocort (3mg/3xday). The Entocort has given me lots of issues. Really puffy cheeks, the inability to lose any weight while working out constantly, lots of acne, weird hair growth, and these random stretch marks on my thighs and breasts. I told my Dr. I thought I had Cushings Syndrome, which is an effect of Entocort, but she doesn't believe me.
This site is great for support.

I have never wet my pants but I do have serious urine urgency which can be as bad as my poop urgency sometimes.  I don't know if it is crohns related or not but I think for me it is.
25 Year old married female.  Diagnosed w/ CD 2 years ago, IBS for over 10 years before that, which was probably the CD.
I started getting a ton of junkmail after putting my myspace profile link on here.  Im taking it off but if you want to contact me just email me and Ill give you a link to my myspace.  Sorry!
