I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis at 34. I have had lower back many and some joint pain for many years. I always thought it was to due with the UC or because I was a Pre-K teacher. My job kept me very active.
The last couple years I started feeling extremely fatigued.
The last year I have had really bad lower back and hip pain. It is now pretty much everywhere. Shoulders, ankles, elbows etc...
My RA test was negative but my CRP and Sed rate was high.
My X-rays of my hips was normal.
I just had an ultrasound sound of my Achilles’ tendons. I do not know the results yet.
In order to start on biologic drugs my Rheumatologist needs to have proof for the insurance company.
She mentioned an MRI but has not sent me for that yet.
I am just curious if this sounds familiar to anyone... and what is next?
She gave me Celebrex but it made me so sick.
Prednisone helped so much but is not a long term solution.
