I developed severe hip pain in the midst of a CD flare one time. In fact the hip pain was so bad I needed a walker to get around. At that point my GI suspected that I had Spondyloarthropathy [SpA] associated with the CD. That is when it was decided I needed Remicade even though my Crohn's was considered "mild." My SpA, now diagnosed as Ankylosing Spondylitis, is in fact more problematic than my CD. Remicade put my guts in remission but the joints continue to flare periodically.
