Well, the Remicade has stopped working and I can't start humira till I get approved through my insurance so right now I'm moving like the Tin Man before Dorothy found the can of oil. My feet and knees are swollen and very painful.  Gotta love this DD.
Crohns 30 years. Ileostomy for 15 years. Symptom free for 14 years until 10 months ago. Was on Remicade but just recently switched to Humira because remicade stopped working, B-12 injections and iron.
God Bless. Tony

Gentle BUT big hugs. I literally feel your pain. My guts are in remission, but the joints are terrible. Hope you get some relief soon.

Acupuncture, fish oil, Align probiotics, Isatis cooling and Vege Glucosamine have done wonders for my arthritis. I do take Mobic once a day, too. It's an NSAID my GI approved. Hope you get some relief soon!b
