I was Dx with CD about a year ago then had a emergency resection.  I was on Imuran then my blood count dropped to 7.5.  so my Dr. stopped me on and I am just on Pentasa currently.  I have noticed some changes in my body including this weird joint popping.  has anyone experienced this??  and what is causing this?  Thanks guys

I don't know what causes it but when I was younger I used to snap, crackle and pop all the time. Now I just wish I would again as it always was like relief to the pressure in the joint. I don't think its really anything to be concerned about.

Welcome to the forum,we are glade to have you but I hate that you are having to deal with all of is not uncommon for us to have joint pain it seem's to be a side effect.The joint poping could be a sign that there is something else going on with you.If this is giving you a lot of trouble you may want to ask your PCP to refer you to a Rheumy.I wished that I could help you more.Please continue to post here and please know you are welcome any time.
