All of a sudden my body aches all over which seems to be getting worse every day. I have been on lialda for almost a year and it has kept away my problems with crohns. Before that, the only thing that worked was prednisone. Now when i sit for any period of time and stand up to walk i have to walk like an old man for a few steps because my back hurts so bad. When i go to bend down the pain is unbelievable in my muscles. My Achilles tendons are tender to the touch and my shoulder throbs in pain all the time. I have also had what seems like tennis elbow for the last 5 months and its not getting better.
Could this all be from taking the Lialda? I have been in remission for about a year and i am afraid to stop the lialda and have the crohns flair up again and have to go back to prednisone again. Has anyone else experianced this kind of pain?
