I have crohn's, and about 3 years ago during my worst flare up, we counted 25, yes 25 ulcers in my mouth at one time. It was the worst pain I've ever felt that period of my life. It was so bad there was no way I could eat anything. Things were too hard and felt like they were cutting the ulcers, soup was too hot, and eventually it got to the point I could barely open my mouth because it felt like I was stretching the ulcers. I lost a ton of weight in a really short period of time, so eventually the doctor gave me this numbing stuff I would gurgle and it froze my mouth long enough to eat a small meal. It was brutal

Well there it is. My question is in the title. I just don't understand, because UC is only in the colon. Strange stuff....

Anyone else with UC and mouth ulcers?
Hi,yes i got it too.Seems its the cortizones.Very important is the basics,clean theeth very properly,floss,rinse your sinusses with slightly mixed salt water often.All the bacteries there attack these ulcers.Remove cane sugar and acid foods,it make it worse.My ulcers slowly heal by itself.Otherwise u can get more medicine for that too.But by this time i hate any extra medicines.Good luck

I did start him on B complex and that saw them off. I stopped giving him the supplement and when he became ill and was flaring they never did come back.
This could be the key for many of you. Various B vitamin deficiencies can cause mouth ulcers. Iron deficiency anemia can as well. It certainly won't hurt to supplement a little and could possibly make a big difference.

Is there any sort of multivitamin that covers all, if not most of the vitamins we need? It could get very expensive to buy a seperate bottle of every single vitamin we need everyday.

Just out of curiosity

Hi Jesse,
I just joined the site, on behalf of my mom. She has UC and has been suffering with these flare ups of mouth ulcers. You're right about the ridiculous pain that come from them, according to what she tells me. If I call her when she has them, she doesn't even wanna talk because they hurt so bad. After reading everyone's input, I guess I'll research the possibility of it being a "B Complex", (B9), imbalance. You definitely are not alone on this. I'm sorry you have UC and the ulcers, but I'm glad to find out that mom's not alone on this. I'll let you know if I find any answers.
Take care,
Susie
