Hi All ,This is my first post
Just wanted to know if any of you had the same problems while on pentasa.
I have been taking pentasa 4 the last 3years and prior to that salazopyrin for +/- 10years.
I have noticed over the last 6 months that i'm having really bad joint pain ,in the ankle,knee,hip,wrist,elbow,shoulder, mainly on the right side, the pain lasts from 10mins. to a few hours at a time. I also have numbness in my right hand from the pinky to the middle finger that extends all the way to the elbow this numbness is there all the time.
Last month I had a kidney stone removed
Could all these symptoms be medication related
All replies/experiences are appreciated
