I have one swollen joint - my sternoclavicular joint. MRI showed soft tissue swelling and no arthritis.
Other than that, I have lots of joint pain that is not accompanied by inflammation. My sed rate has always tested normal, as well as CrP.
Interesting, hsmom, about
the Vitamin D deficiency. I didn't know that.
36 year old mother of a fabulous toddler.
Diagnosed with Crohn's July 2007. I believe it's in the right side of my colon.
Tapered down off Entocort mid August. Now on Asacol 2400, Protonix 40mg/day.
On Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) since late July and seeing improvement in "output" quality and hopefully therefore absorption. Taking SCD legal supplements: B vitamins, Folonic Acid 800mg, EnZym Complete DPP IV Aid by Kirkman, and Saccaromyces Boulardii (a probiotic yeast).
Current biggest complaints: LRQ fullness and slight burning, gastritis symptoms, horrible right hip and low back pain.
