Marla, Since my last surgery for Crohn's in 2006, my arthritis has been terrible. I see a Rhematologist and a GI. My Rheumy says that my arthritis is a reslt of the CD. I have a positive RH factor and my ANA was high. My previous Rheumy diagnosed me with RA, but my new doctor insists that it is the CD.
I am also on Humira, but it does not help with the joint pain and swelling. I wish I knew what to say to help, but I can give you some sympathy because I know exactly how you feel. The pain is almost unberable at time.
Have you seen a Rheumatologist? If not, you probably need to. Good Luck and hope you are feeling better.

Humira since 04/07 for CD, Prozac, Diovan, Cardizem, B12 Inj., Prevacid, and Lortab and Ambien as needed for Fibro
