I have been taking 9mg of Entocort for almost a month now and I have started having HORRIBLE muscle pain. It is mostly in my legs but on bad days it spreads to my legs, back, and neck. I also have awful joint pain in my knees and ankles. The pain is getting so bad that is hard for me to walk, especially down or up stairs. I was just wondering if anybody else has had these symptoms and if you have, how did you get rid of them or treat them? I was just hoping that there would be some remedy to help ease the pain until the doctor lowers my dosage.

I had super bad problems with Entocort as well. Joint pain in my knees, ankles and in my lower back. There were a few days where all I could do was curl up in a ball and cry till it went away. I couldn't walk without falling down. Luckily it didn't last too long. Probably like an hour or so. And it would come and go. The only thing that I felt could help a bit was rubbing on my knees continuously. Also, stretching everyday can help prevent the pain from happening. If nothing works, just take some pain meds. I know how bad it can hurt!
Good luck to you!
Diagnosed with CD in Jan 07 after going to different doctors for fissures or what I thought were hemmeroids. After getting a colonoscopy they found out I had Crohns. I had no idea what the hell CD was, but once I read up on it, realized I've had mild symptoms since age 12. I'm now 19.
I have mild to moderate CD, and don't have many symptoms other than my 3 fissures, stomach pain after eating, diarreah, bloating, cramping, gastritis on occasion, and then other random health issues that are caused from CD like gingivitis for example.
Just got off of Entocort (too many side effects) and Cipro. I'm now trying the Maker's Diet as well as a bunch of vitamins and probiotics. Let's hope this helps a bit!
