I have been increasing the dose of Lialda steadily to 4.8 grams. When I increased to 3.6, I started having some joint pain in my fingers, and toes. Now at 4.8, my right knee is starting to swell a little and hurts a lot!! My GI symptoms are almost completely in remission and I've never had arthritis with my Crohn's so I'm pretty sure its the mesalamine.
Could someone verify that this is mesalamine? Is this an emergency or should I just lower the dose?
Thanks guys, I've started my first post-college job (my dream job!) and all is well except for this :)
