I have been hanging out on the Crohn's board, b/c there was some suspicion I had that which appears to be unfounded (barring EGD biopsy results). Anyway, during my EGD yesterday, he saw evidence of Grade A Esophagitis, for which I have no symptoms. He prescribed some Omeprazole, but I am wary of taking it. If I have no symptoms how would I know it's working? My husband, who was with me and was much more coherent than I was when my GI was talking to me after the procedure, said he prescribed it in the event that I should need it. I'll call the doc to clarify, as at this point I barely recall talking to him. Gotta love propofol!
Anyway, so is this likely to get worse if untreated? I know when researching Crohn's an underlying "theme" was that untreated chronic inflammation is not a good thing, whether you're symptomatic or not. I know y'all aren't doctors, but I am curious as to your experiences with this dx. Is it progressive?
