From time to time I get water/fluid build up in either my knee's or ankles. But it's also when I'm going through a crohn's flare. Its like my bodies way of telling me my crohn's is going to flare. The joints will flare first and then within a week I'm in the bathroom. So in my case yes having crohn's causes my joints to flare and swell up too.
Living with Crohn's Disease since Jan./2000
I'm a true Crohnie with IBS and Arthrities too. I have Crohn's very mild compared to a lot of Crohn's people.
