Gastritis and Crohn's

I have Crohn’s disease in the last part of my small intestines. I took Pred for it for about six weeks and now I take azathioprine everyday for it. My pain never completely went away. After the Pred I started having a different pain in the upper part of my tummy along with my usual side pain. So I asked my doctor about it and he wanted to do a upper GI. I had the upper GI done two days ago and he found Gastritis. He took a sample of it for a lap to look at. I want know the findings of the lap report for two weeks. The question I have is there anyone else here with Gastritis and Crohn’s ? I wonder if the Gastritis is Crohn’s ?

Hello. I was never dx with Gastritis but for years I had pain and burning in the epigastric region. I have been on acid blockers off and on as my disease flared. Prednisone can increase your chances of having gastric ulcers as well. Since crohn's can be located anywhere in the digestive tract you could have crohn's there. For me, the pain is gone since I had surgery. Stomach pain sucks... I hope you start to have some relief. Did your doc prescribe you some acid blocking meds?

I had Gastritis right during my episode of Crohn's prior to my diagnosis. The Endoscopy revealed pictures of my stomach lining that looked like a stewed Tomato.

I also was given a couple of different acid blockers, one which made it worse, and the other that did nothing.

I had three separate tests for H-Pylori, all were negative. I could not live with this much longer as it was giving me more trouble than my Crohn's.

Thanks to my skeptical nature about lab tests, I treated for H-Pylori anyway using an alternative treatment I have quite a bit of experience with. It killed the H-Pylori that I did have in my stomach and that was the last problem I ever had with it. The treatment I used only targeted the H-Pylori bacteria, and is not known to affect any other, so I am 99% certain that is what was killed.

In retrospect, this is what I believe happened. When I started getting my Crohn's symptoms, I was using a lot of antacids. Like two or three rolls of TUMS in a week.

I believe this weakened the stomach acid and allowed H-Pylori to move up into the normally hostile environment of my stomach. The acid blockers used later only made it even easier for the bacteria to multiply.

I am also fairly certain that the H-Pylori bacteria plays an important role in Crohn's Disease symptoms in general. It is one of the three that I think are involved.

I take Previcid daily to help with stomach acid. When bile acid backs up do to a narrowing or block, that's when I suffer the most. But, doing very well after my last surgery. I have Crohn's in your same area.
