Hi.  My biggest complaint is tendon pain.  My stomach has been OK.  I've been taking Humira for 6 months with little improvement.  Doc wants to add methotrexate but I refused.  Now he wants to try the antibiotic minocyclene.  Has anyone tried this for joint pain associated with crohns?

No, this is the first I've heard of it for this. I'm always on the lookout for joint pain remedies!
