HomeBoy, a lot of us see rheumys. I have arthritis with my Crohn's and my GI won't touch it, so I see a rheumy for that. She prescribes arthritis-related meds and pain meds for me, but I do always consult with my GI before starting any new meds that could effect my Crohn's. Make sure your rheumy knows you have Crohn's, as some of the arthritis meds can hurt your stomach...there are a lot of pills I can't take and my rheumy tries to select those with the least stomach upset. I really like having a "team" of doctors because I can always get a second opinion if I don't really understand what one of them tells me. When my GI said he couldn't get Humira approved weekly (but so many people on this forum get it weekly), I asked my rheumy if she could. She also said no, but I felt better having two answers.
Crohn's Disease, Acid Reflux/Gastritis, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, Endometriosis, Arthritis, Depression/Anxiety. Too many meds to list them all. =)
