Hi, my daughter who has UC and who has been fine (no flares, no medicine) for the past 6 years, has had excruciating arthritis that jumps from joint to joint after being on a round of Omnicef for an ear infection. In the past, she has always gotten joint pain whenever she goes on an antibiotic but it has always gone away after a couple of days. This bout with arthritis has lasted 3 months. Rheumatologist said it was UC related. Two C-Diff tests have come back negative, no diarrhea or anything but her colonoscopy showed inflammation in her colon so she is now on Asacol. I'm thinking of asking her doctor to switch to Sulfasazine since I heard it helps with Arthritis, but before I go through the hassle of changing meds, does anyone know if it would help in this type of arthritis that jumps around? Has anyone had this happened to them after being on an antibiotic? Thanks!
