I'm new here, so I'll give my requisite summary and make it brief:
I am 18 years old, diagnosed with Crohns Disease in August 2006, although I've probably had it for a few years beforehand. I'm on remicade, and as a consequence I was on Imuran until about two weeks ago when I switched to the weekly injection-based methotrexate. After my 2nd injection, I started having delibitating intense traveling joint pain. My knees, my ankles, toes, wrists, fingers, thumbs, elbows -- when I moved it, it hurt. It never stays in the same place, and completely destroys my ability to run, walk, or lift anything heavier than a book -- sometimes not even.
Oh yeah -- and my tongue feels like a rake went over it.
This is unusual for me. I don't usually encounter any serious pain. I have my occassional attack every once in a blue moon, but this is the first time that the joint pain has gotten out of control completely. Advice would be much appreciated.
