Hi to everyone
Well I've been off the forum for a while. Have been having some trouble with tiredness and sweating..still! I started Pentassa 2000mg daily almost 2 weeks ago. No side effects to report..phew!! But, I do have lower back pain. I have had this on and off for probably about 2 years and in that time I remember I have had a couple of episodes where it has been really bad, but I put it down to my profession. I remember being at work on a couple of occassions and walking down the stairs was incredibly painful. After a few days it settles. But over the last couple of weeks I have noticed that it is there more consistantly and when I bend down to pick something up, my lower back cracks. This may be nothing to worry about, but it is becoming troubling. Does anyone else suffer from this, and if so what on earth is it? I am a little worried that it may be some form of arthritis. I don't suffer from joint pain anywhere else, at least not yet! But would like some ideas from anyone who may know, just so I can suggest to the GI next time I see him..which is in about 3 weeks. I definitely does not feel like muscle pain. Any ideas would be most appreciated. Thanks everyone.
