Female 38. Anyone else have this that has suffered with crohns or mystery stomach symptoms? I have had ongoing stomach issues for over 7 years no positive IBD yet just telling me its IBS as of now but I get horrible pain where I can't even move or eat sometimes for weeks during flares. Had multiple colonoscopies and upper endoscopies. Now after increasing joint pain I recently saw a rheumotologist due to the amount of autoimmune and arthritis in my family and tested positive for the HLA-B27 gene. So I guess I'm wondering if anyone has had crohns or other stomach issues then developed arthritis. Anything help them? Meds or treatments? My fingers and feet hurt really bad mostly fingers and hands. Hard to even bend them at times. It really started recently after my most recet stomach flare and diagnosis of E.Coli. I have asked my GI Dr to order me the PillCam which I am going for in 2 weeks. Any imput helpful. Thank you.
