Dentist  tell me the abscesses are in the bones and I've had several root canals, bridges, bone surgeries that last 3 years, teeth became so mobile after the bone economy I had them pulled and now a partial one month ago. Bone loss etc. I don't have the ridges in my mouth that most Crohn patients have. Appears to affect the upper teeth.
Crohns diagnosed at the age of 39. Moderate to severe.
Dentists state the problem is the use of prednisone and having Crohn.

From this study (3 weeks ago):
My pain first started in my hip in groin are and now my upper thigh is pain is causing both my leg pain when I stand or walk.
From this study (2 months ago):
I'm 19 and have been getting large kidney stones for the past few months now. I am curious as to see if the reason why I have been getting them, along with diverticulitis, is because of the types of birth control I have been taking. I took a depo-provera shot every 3 months for about 4 years, and started Sprintec about half a year ago. Are there any connections? I was thinking because the depo reduced calcium in my body, and that taking Sprintec caused a rush of calcium, that might be a reason.
