New to forum and realize your post is from years ago but wondered if you found any explanations or any treatments that helped. I had same symptoms in August that lasted three months and took five doctors and a very painful biopsy of tongue for them to tell me it was common symptom of uc. Then was referred back to gi doc. Again having the same ulcers in throat, gums and on top, sides and under tongue with horrible pain and bleeding. Can't hardly even swallow water.
Hoping for some helpful remedy suggestions other than prednisone. Looking forward to any replies and also to help anyone with my experiences with uc. Oh by the way I was diagnosed with uc in 2011. Went from doc saying didn't really want to say I have uc due to one ulcer and not typical area to one month later full blown ulcerative colitis throughout complete colon. Lots of meds and still never gotten into full remission but still trying to live normal life.View Thread
I started humira in Nov 2013 when remicade no longer worked. Not really sure if it ever worked. Never been in total remission since diagnosed in 2011. I only pay $5.00 for a month's supply. Not sure if you need insurance to get this but you should call 1-800-448-6472 and see what they can tell you. My gi doctor put me in contact with a humira representative when I started and she signed me up. First dose was even just $5. Hope this can help you.View Thread
