Hello to everyone
I just wanted to share what I have been learning in the last couple of months.... There is a good website www.spodylitis.org
that has a lot of information about
entropathic arthritis. It is my understanding that not all people with CD with experience this, but many will. It is also my understanding that if you did not have a DX of CD then the name for the arthritis would be spondylitis. My sons Reumy told me to go to this website to get informed,and to read a book called Strait Talk.
He also said that although the CD and arthritis are both autoimune diseases and the treatment for one is often the same as the treatment for the other, that the remission or control of one will often bring the other to a flare. It is often the chicken and the egg scenerio, achy joints or stomach pain? Anyhow, I have really learned a lot form this website, and hope that it might help some of you out too.
