I heard someone say that they get severe and frequent canker sores as a result of crohn’s, does anybody else experience this?

    I'm about to get tested soon to see if I have Crohn's, but one of the questions they asked is if I get sores in my mouth. I currently have one, never had one before though, and can't say it's from Crohn's or anything

    yes, i get sores on the roof of my mouth for no reason all the time and my doctor told me it is because of my crohns

    My gums swell around my teeth and the roof part like I ate something hot, plus the sores. It’s all from Crohn’s.

    Same, when I'm in a flare, I get canker sores on my inner bottom lip and have had them in the corners of my mouth. I never get canker sores....unless I have a flare and the longer my flare is happening, the more likely sores take a while to go away.

    I get them in my mouth and on the outside of my body. Literally all over me. I almost lost my leg over an ulcer that was open for 3 1/2 years.
