Hi Kelly. The pain specialist who dx'd me told me FMS is associated w/ CD. I also googled it and I read the same thing multiple times. I also have lots of back issues from the neck down to teh SI joints. Bulging discs, stenosis, bone spurs, pinched nerves, sacroiliitis (from CD), etc. BTW my gastro said bulging discs can cause intestinal pain too.
FMS does cause it's own itching too. It especially hits me when I'm trying to sleep, adn continues to wake me up. Benedryl helps, but also causes restless leg syndrome, so...do I or don't I? I odn't. I deal w/ the itching.
