Sulfasalazine (Azulfadine) is a good med that helps with the Crohns and the joints. I am allergic to sulfa, but hope this med helps you. I wish I could take it as it worked well for me when I was first diagnosed. Many folks with Crohns especially when flaring will have some joint issues. I have not only Osteoarthritis related to the Crohns and Fibromyalgia too. I would recommend a visit to a Rheumatologist if the Azulfadine does not help ease your joint pain, as that could point to othe joint issues going on. Good luck and Hugs!
