I think i have RA. Is this a common side-car for Crohns patients?

General,
I know you have heard this before, but I **** at your screen name. I think that there are others that suffer from both, since they are both autoimmune. I'm sure they will chime in. Why do you think you have RA? Do you have joint pain and swelling in joints?

Yup. Even what appears to be that beginning of joint deformation.
Diagnosed with CD: November 2003
Probably had it long before that.
 
Currently taking: Not what I asked for.
 
Cant eat: I can eat anything.
 
Crohn's Wishlist: I would like a minor resection surgery...you know...just to see what it's all about and so I can say I had one.

Try to get a referral to a rheumatologist asap. There are meds that can help w chrons and RA, but you will probably have to go through the " not what I asked for " first to get insurance to cover. Humira worked great for me to stop joint damage, but reversing it is near impossible.
Best wishes!
