So also i been checked two weeks ago by upper and lower scope and no signs of Crohn's i still can have the ea and the inflamed esophagus from crohns?

Probably not : If the esophagus pathology was negative, then you do not have active crohns of the esophagus. Period. You our might still have joint problems but it is going to be hard to say for sure whether this is crohns related or not. ...Read more

Can i be 20 years in remission with Crohn's and still have enteropathic arthirities? And can Crohn's also cause an inflamed esophagus ?

Yes!: Crohn's can cause inflammation in the esophagus. Typically this is very painful when eating. You can develop arthritis with crohn's disease, but typically the degree of pain tracks with the activity of your crohn's disease. So if you are having joint pain, check with your GI doctor. You may need to be checked out. ...Read more

Hi I had a endoscopy jan 6th and just have a mild inflamed esophagus. It feels like I have a hernia near my esophagus but wouldn't they find that?

Hi I had a endoscopy jan 6th and just have a mild inflamed esophagus. It feels like I have a hernia near my esophagus but wouldn't they find that?

Maybe not: Small hiatal hernias can slide up and down easily through the opening in the diaphragm, and therefore can be easily missed on endoscopic examination. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Hi I have acid reflux and mildly inflamed esophagus and I might have to get my gallbladder out. If I get it out will the pain be worse or will it help?

Hi I have acid reflux and mildly inflamed esophagus and I might have to get my gallbladder out. If I get it out will the pain be worse or will it help?

Hopefully better.: if the pain you're referring to is truly due to the gallbladder, then the cholecystectomy should help your pain. It will not affect any acid reflux that you have one way or the other. You may still need medication for that if it is symptomatic. Good luck. ...Read more

Inflamed esophagus, ppi make me feel ill. Will Zantac 300mg a day heal it the same?

Inflamed esophagus,  ppi make me feel ill. Will Zantac 300mg a day heal it the same?

Esophagitis: Zantac can be effective in this situation. But, it is not as effective as the ppis. What always amazes me with this problem is that I have yet to have a patient ask on how to prevent the problem in the first place. What foods and drink and weight cause gerd and thus esophagitis. This is the more important part of healing: stopping the problem. ...Read more

I have a mild inflamed esophagus and my doc put me on Prilosec Otc but it's making me sick and not helping. I was on Nexium before. Can I just go back?

I have a mild inflamed esophagus and my doc put me on Prilosec Otc but it's making me sick and not helping. I was on Nexium before. Can I just go back?

Of course you can...: ...or better yet, discuss your experience to medications with your treating provider so the appropriate therapeutic choice can be tailored to your needs. While acid blocker therapy may be interchangable, tolerance to these drugs is however an individual phenomenon. ...Read more

If you have an inflamed esophagus and stomach but have no ulcers or bacteria of anykind is it ok to eat veggies and fruit like tomatoes?

If you have an inflamed esophagus and stomach but have no ulcers or bacteria of anykind is it ok to eat veggies and fruit like tomatoes?

Esophagitis: This depends upon the source of the inflammation. Bacterial infection in these circumstances is usually not the issue, but rather there is the potential for viruses and yeasts to produce inflammation. Or this may simply be due to reflux. Eating various foods may irritate these tissues, but you should first be seen and evaluated by a GI doctor. ...Read more

GERD : In general, you should stick to the prescribed dose. If you want to increase your dose, you should discuss this with your physician. ...Read more

Hello I have mild inflamed esophagus from endoscopy. Been on Nexium for a few weeks. How do I stop the sore throat and belching? It's awful!

Hello I have mild inflamed esophagus from endoscopy. Been on Nexium for a few weeks. How do I stop the sore throat and belching? It's awful!

Call your G.I. doc.: if it is going to help, Nexium would probably have started giving you some relief by now. I would recommend avoiding any particular foods that you notice make the problem worse. You should consider tilting your bed and avoiding caffeine and alcohol. I would call your gastroenterologist to see if you need to adjust the Nexium dosage or switch to a new medicine. Good luck. ...Read more
