Hi,
 
I was wondering if anyone else has dry eyes. If so have you noticed that your eyes tend to feel dry or uncomfortable when your GERD is acting up? I have found out that my eyes dry out and I get a real bad taste in my mouth.
 
Anyone?
Hospitalized with Infectious Colitis.
Colonscopy showed ulcers.Diagnose changed to either UC or Crohn's
Whatever it is, I was told its mild...
Medication Asacol 1x3 
Never had a good follow up - no small bowel test at all.
Gastroscopy was normal, but Still have a burning feeling in my stomach.
Looking for a doctor in Oslo who knows what he's doing atm.

Hi Pia.......just a FYI. Dry eyes are associated with IBD's and are quite common. :) It might be a coincidence that you notice it more when your GERD acts up but they have otc eye drops for dry eye that works great. Such as Systane or Refresh.
