Every now and then I get these it feels like darts or shoots of nerve pain. Anyone get these? Could it be a med. effect? What are the first symptoms of arthritis or nervous system problems?
30 yr. old dx with CD 10 years ago. Currently on folic acid and azulfadine and questran.  Had ileum removed and resection May 2007.  Just started back to work after being off 13 weeks.  Back off of work again cuz I'm just not healthy and I just can't do it. Still feeling lousy.  In the process of trying to get approved to start Humira ASAP!!!!  It scares me immensely!!!!  Just started Humira 8/20/07-loading dose of 4 pens (160mg).
Allergic to: Asacol, Pentasa, Imuran, Paxil, Zoloft, Penicilian, Ampicilian, and now Humira.
 And prednisone does not work for me anymore!!!

Hi I ocassionally get the pain in my legs. I take vicodin for the pain. It could be circular problems.

The only time I have had nerve type pain was when I had a pinched nerve or a herniated disk.  Where on your body are you getting these pains?  You should probably go see your Family doc and have it checked out.  Just fyi, my nerve pain was not Crohns related.  And arthritis doesn't feel like nerve pain, arthritis is more of a constant achy pain.

Been living with Crohn's Disease for 32 years.  Currently on Asacol, Prilosec 60 mg, Estrace, Prinivil, Diltiazem, Percoset prn for pain and Calcium.  Resections in 2002 and 2005.  Recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and doing tests to see if I have Inflammatory Arthritis or AS.

It could be a sign of low vitamin B12.

Hi, Hayley -
I had those kinds of pains when I was coming off of Zoloft. I ended up allergic to it and the withdrawal caused those shooting pains. Maybe if you are coming off a med now???
I see your list of allergies. I'm afraid I am going to go down that same road with you. So far I've had reactions to sulfa drugs (Bextra -years ago), entocort, prednisone and zoloft. I have yet to start anything else but I'm quite worried nothing will work. Can I ask what your symptoms were that you knew you couldn't take these drugs?
Dx'd CD in August 2007 - 42-yr-old wife and mom
Allergic to Entocort and Prednisone / Not sure what's next
Currently on Protonix, calcium and multi-vit; and Flovent (for asthma)
