Hi, I was reading your post and saw an ad for lialda to the side of my screen. When I went to that site, a side effect of your med is arthralgia and back pain. My first suspect with any abnormal sx are meds. It doesn't mention dry eyes but another site mentioned changes in vision. Also, arthritis is common in us chronnies, sometimes even before we are diagnosed with cd. If your pain is just right-sided though, I would have your pcp check it out. BTW, prepared health food store food is mostly too spicy for me, even though it may be healthy.
Diagnosed at age 19 with CD.
3 small bowel resections, 1 for perforation, 2 for strictures
