Hi kaj2313! Sorry you are having so many problems....trust me, you are not alone! I get sores in my mouth (thrush). I have been treated for it by my dentist. I just happened to have an appointment for a cleaning when it started, so he treated it for me, otherwise I probably would have called my primary care doc. I've been on prednisone since April and now I have osteopenia, too. I do get joint aches and pains, but they have not been bad enough to need treatment. I usually start with my primary care doc and since she knows my history with Crohn's, if it is something that she thinks I need to go back to the GI for, then that is what I do. It can take forever to get in to see the GI, though....ggggrrrrrr! I have a friend with Crohn's that gets flare ups in her eye and she sees an eye dr for it. They give her steroid eye drops for it.
I'm pretty sure that I didn't clear anything up for you....LOL! I don't think it will hurt to call either doctor:) Let us know what happens!

Take care and big hugs!
Mindy
