I think this a common problem. Heck, sometimes, many times, the arthritis is much worse that stomach issues. Sulfasalazine has worked wonders, but I also feel real bad when it is time for my next dose of Cimzia (it runs out about
3-7 days before the next dose).
My Rheummy and my GI also work closely together. Yeah, it seems that the pain is in the bone. But, it is so weird, my Rheummy found that it was the inflammation of the tendons like Keeper and mchaz.
Also, it may seem like its moving, but sometimes it may not be, just the pain is increased in another joint, but the pain that was there yesterday is still there, just not as severe, and therefore seems not to be there. (like if you're in a car crash, bust your femur and scrape the He** out your back, you may not even notice it, cuz the femur hurts like a bleep bleep.) My Rheummy tested my joints, and found tenderness even in the ones that didn't seem to hurt that day (you know, brought more pain, and therefore you noticed, yeah it hurts)
Make an appointment with your doc, cuz after you'll wonder why you didn't sooner.
