Hi..i've always had problems with my shoulders/joints/back/neck since I was a kid....but it's not helped having repetative strain injury.
Do get it checked out for sure for confirmation and find out what you can do to maintain strength in it.
Try not to imagine everything is UC related....some of us just have "falling apart bodies"...lol.
Do you see a chiropractor? It's helped me immensely.....I can at least function and work.
*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg; Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
