I was wondering if anyone has any ideas of what supplements I could take for my aching joints?
My Crohn's is running wild again and this time my joints are aching more than ever, I can't take tablets with plastic shells on them, nor ones that take ages to break down as my lack of small bowel can't hold on to them long enough and they end up in my colostomy bag.
All though I have had trouble in the past with joint pain and stuff this time it seems more long term (if that makes any sense) like my lower back, elbows, neck, knees and ankles. I'm only 37 and can't put them down to old age just yet (I hope)
Im a roofer but have done nothing or fell off nothing to cause more painful joints? I go the gym 5 times a week, so I've not been anymore over active to cause more painful joints?
I take azathioprine 200mg everyday and inject humira every other Monday, with vitamin B injections every 6 weeks? but have been for about 10 years now? So I don't think it's that? And the only thing that has started to change is my eating habits, meaning 2 mouthfuls of food and I'm done? And if I force a sandwich down I feel sick as a dog for ages after, along with tummy ache and constant trips to the toilet to empty my bag.
If anyone has any ideas that would be great, cheers nick
