okay so I know we all get joint pain and mine is funny, sometimes it is way worse and others its okay or gone completely....BUT I do have this problem with my right knee---that NEVER goes away. It hurts to bend down, be on my knees for any amount of time, walk sometimes, and getting up from sitting is horrible.
 
Anybody have joint pain that began after the DX of crohns but doesnt go away when all the other joint pain does?? 
 
I had an Xray recently on it, but when I called for results, the doc said they didnt have them back..its been like 2 weeks...wth?  I would think they would be back, if its not in the joint, should I see about a MRI? Im only 28 and cant hardly get down to play with my 17mthold, I dont want to have to get a walker! cool

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

It sounds like OA-but what do you mean about not getting the x-rays back-did they not read them their in the office? Who took them you GP? See an orthopedic specialist or a rhuemy.
If it is OA there are things that can be done to fix it or at least treat it. If it is some form of inflamitory arthritis then your chron's is probably not well controlled either and you need to discuss other forms of medication.

sjkly---can I get OA being this young? I thought it was elderly people that got OA.

I was sent by my primary care per hospital instructions for a bone density screening and a xray of my knee. I went like 2floors down from her office to have it done and they said they hadnt gotten the results--whatever that meant

That sounds strange to me. I've never had an issue with a simple X-Ray making it to my GP's, or GI's office inside a 2 week period. Try pressing them for more details. Ask how long it usually takes. Perhaps they're very very backlogged. Perhaps they're just lazy. Knowing when to expect them to have the X-Rays will at least tell you when you can call back and not be considered a pest. :-)

(I make a habit of being a pest... but that's just me...)

I kept having a problem with my left knee. I would have periods that it would hurt something fierce. I would have xrays and they would tell me that they didn't see anything. And then I started seeing a Rheumatologist and she ordered a MRI. They found that I had a significant tear in my medial meniscus. She sent me to a ortho doc who did surgery on March 24th. Its just about healed now and doesn't hurt as intensley as it did before. I do have osteo-arthritis in it, so when its rainy it does start to ache some, but better than before. Crohns does cause inflammatory arthritis so that could be your problem too. Hope that helps some.
Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.
