It basically is simular to swelling. the areas that are inflammed are larger than they are supposed to be.

Do not worry about anything though and just be patient until you see the doctor next.

Hey Leah,

how are you feeling today? hope you are feeling ok..

yeah, all that is normal with crohns, I too had that at one time, I've pretty much had crohns symtoms from my eyes to the anus at one time or another, I agree with the others, try not to worry about it and let the doctors do what they do best The only time I ever question what the doctor says or does, is when they discuss the possibility of surgery, because surgery means "gone for good", and one thing, if nothing else, I have learned about having crohns, is that, just because inflammation appears somewhere, doesn't mean its going to be there forever..

I have seen even Gall Bladder ulcers disappear on their own before, I have seen stomach, throat, eye, ulcers on outside of skin, all suddenly appear then suddenly disappear on their own before, so when it comes to surgery for inflammation, i always think twice about it, always, but otherwise, I take any medications or do whatever it is my doctors tell me...always have I like to think of inflammation like having an allergy to something, yeah its there for awhile, but then suddenly when you least expect it the inflammed area just disappears out of thin air, its the strangest thing. hehe.. Doesn't always happen that way, sometimes ulcers get worse and develop holes (like my Fistula I've had forever) but gosh otherwise every other place on my body just disappeared mysteriously, that tends to be how crohns works sometimes. so I wouldn't worry too much about it

take care.

I really do not know what it means. The best bet is to speak directly with your doctor and ask what that means. You can try the internet to see what those things are, but just be careful, as what is written may not totally go with what you have.

Hi Leah - new here to the group, figured I'd pop my head in.

Any of the "itises" means inflammation. Gastritis is inflammation of the gastric lining. Could be stomach, intestines, etc. From your earlier post it sounds like inflammation of the stomach's gastic lining.

Esophagitis is inflammation of the espophagus' lining.

Basically, it's a fancy way of saying that your digestive system is inflamed.

Whether they will put you in the hospital or not, I cannot answer. I'm not very familiar with any specific symptoms you've been having as I haven't come across that post yet. I will say this.

Try and get in a calm state of mind. Don't guess about what they will do. Make like a buddhist and go chase some Zen. Easier said than done, I know that for sure. Do your best to not stress, not guess, and just overall, relax. Whatever relaxes you, go experience some of it.

Hope you feel better, it's always the preferred option. Have a good one,

Dave
