You already have arthritis in your fingers and knees, I wonder if you really have arthritis in your elbow too?!? I know I was recently diagnosed with inflammatory arthritis associated with Crohns. My knees, si joint and spine really give me grief.

I have terrible bouts of enthesitis. Enthesitis is inflammation in the tendon where it attaches to the bone. I have had it in my shoulders. elbows, knees, Achilles, hamstrings, etc. This is all caused by my ankylosing spondylitis according to my rheumy. Remicade really helped get it under control. Recently had to stop Remicade and go onto Humira. Hoping it works as well. It you continue to have joint problems, an evaluation by a rheumatologist might not be a bad idea.
