Does your wife have Crohn's disease? I read the other posts under your screen name and from that I assume she does. There are a couple types of arthritis associated with Crohn's. Also, as people age, some get osteoarthritis, a "wear and tear" type of arthritis. Also, anyone that has one autoimmune disease can get others so she needs to be tested for rheumatoid arthritis. The best type of doctor to evaluate and diagnosis what type of arthritis she has, is a rheumatologist.
