In regards to my previous discussion about joint pain with ulcerative colitis I spoke with the IBD nurse and she said no it's not connected! Well it is connected as its all over the web on every medical site so why did she say this? My lower back permanently aches apart from when I'm relaxed or using a hot water bottle or in the bath... does this mean it's muscular or something? I'm getting quite upset and annoyed now as even my Dr said he doesn't know!
Sometimes I have an ache in my shin, arm, hand, foot, hip also. Does this mean I'm in a mild flare as I have no other symptoms, maybe slight constipation but never blood, Or can joint pain just occur due to the disease itself? I am taking Pentasa 2g a day, maybe I need another drug instead? Thank you x
