Accepted in the last couple of years as genuine symptoms? Interesting, because the Rheumy I saw back in 1995 during my first arthritis flare (severe one, in the knees too btw) had a bunch of literature on Arthritis and IBD arthritis was discussed on page 2. And I have seen it listed in many books on CD & Colitis.
I do not want to sound snarky, but where did you get your information? Or is this from a GI's perspective, since Rheumatologists have known about it for over TWO DECADES.
PS. Feel your pain, my Osteo & CD arthritis symptoms are in FULL swing this past couple of months. Change of weather? Trying to Flare (my bowel movements have increased somewhat despite pain meds & Lyrica)up? Not sure, but my hand (left) had two fingers swell up like balloons!
