Hi all. As I mentioned before I am having a stressful time coping with very elderly parents as well as own family, job etc. While my LS briefly flared it settled down again after two weeks of once daily Clob . However, my gums have become bright red, and bleed very freely. Over the last two weeks they have begun to blister and then form mouth ulcers if I eat a whole range of foods, especially citrus fruits and tomatoes. Alcohol also makes my whole mouth sting and ache. On the plus side I have lost 7lbs! I've been to my doctor who has ruled out thrush, vitamin deficiencies, infections and my hypothyroidism is stlii well controlled. I'm waiting the results of bloodwork to check for coeliac disease. My dentist says its not gingivitus and has referred me to a specialist clinic but I could be waiting months for an appointment. Both doctor and dentist seem to think its an autoimmune reaction to stress. Dentist says oral steroids may be the answert but won't prescribe anything until I've been to the clinic as it would make diagnosis difficult, and anyway I don't want to take them. Has anyone else had anything like this and what did they do about it? I'd love to know that I'm ot the only one with this!
Ps I've never had any food allergies in my life so this is all new to me!
