Hi all,
 
I woke up today and my CD arthritis is acting up in my right ankle and knee.  These are the main joints that my CD has always affected even before my gut started.  I know i tend to have more issues with this around my period but that isnt due for a couple more weeks so I was wondering if anyone has noticed a trigger for their joint pain?
 
It is very achey today I took some tylenol and used a lidoderm patch cut in half have half on my knee half on my ankle which normally at this point would alleviate the pain a bit but as of yet it still hasnt touched it

Dragon Great topic unfortunately I don't have any answers other than sleep, I usually wake up with fingers that won't close against my palms (make a fist) first thing after I wake. It may take up to a half hour to accomplish this act. No swelling or color changes just pain and less mobility. For me hands, wrists and fingers are the most bothersome and have been for a good 15 years. I've at different times in my life had problems with elbows, ankles, knees and back.

I think waking up is the trigger for me but I feel worse if I stay in bed. The more I move the better. Yep, I have to force myself but I do it.
If we would read the secret history of our enemies,we would find in each mans life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

Have you ever seen a rheumatologist about the possibility of having Fibromyalgia? Many Crohnies have it.

I have seen a couple different rhuemy docs I have no idea if I was tested for that but I have been tested for even such things as bone marrow infections from the Rhuemy Doc. I often wonder if I have other complications with my CD incl chronic fatigue syndrome
