I am having a very bad flare up and about a month ago started experiencing major joint pain. My elbows, shoulders, lower back, ankles, wrists and toes are killing me. Why does this happen and what can I do about it??? Please advise me! shakehead
Diagnosed in 2004 with Crohn's disease. Resection in 2009. Have tried almost every medication and nothing has worked. Next step permanent ostomie.

Can you get to a rheumatologist...many of us here see both a GI and a rheumatologist...helps with the joint pain...Joint pain can be an extraintestinal manifestation of this disease...
I have linked a book that gave me a lot of help...it was given out free at one time...
