Hi all, fairly new to this stuff; I reckon I've had colitis for years but only confirmed in October and then confirmed my whole colon was affected in January.
I started off great on pentasa but just coming to the end of a flare up which started just before Xmas (on steriods twice)
I can cope with everything except the joint pain.
It happened in November and now its starting again, my big due knuckle is enlarged, red and throbbing and sore as anything and now my ankle on the same foot has started to swell up, my GP said next time it happens he would prescribe steriods, I told my consultant this and he basically said my GP was talking crap.
Last time this happened I was literally in agony for more than two weeks and was told not to touch pain killers or anti inflams, any advice folks? Thanks
