Ive been in remission with the old UC for nearly a year now.
I'm just wondering if anyone else, gets a burning, dull ache feeling in the hips (mainly the left side). i only have it on and off and it only usually lasts a couple of days but id never had it until i was diagnosed with uc and its really quite uncomfortable.
Also ive got really bad eczema on my head only, i was wondering if this is the UC or maybe from the Azathioprine or pentasa. The dermatologists where i work have given me advice and samples of creams but the eczmea comes right back when the samples run out.
I just thought it was odd that it only affects my head !!

I've had eczema on my hands for the last few years.Now it's spreading up my forearms.My doctor told me it was likely to be related to the UC.I don't think it's the drugs,but more to do with having Auto-Immune problems(ie UC!).

Joint pains are a frequent "extra-intestinal" feature of UC. Talk to your doc, though, as evaluation is needed to make sure there isn't something else going on. But yes, my joints hurt a lot of the time; I've just sort of learned to expect it and ignore it.

Eczema is an auto-immune skin disease. Those of us who have one AI disease, such as UC, are much more likely to develop others. My personal, completely non-scientific theory, is that I have autoimmune disease; when it attacked my thyroid we called it Graves disease; when it attacked my skin we called it atopic dermatitis; now it's attacking my colon, and we call that UC.

see I work with Dermatologists and they know how to treat the eczema, just annoying isnt it. kinda like one thing after another. Just wish it wouldnt keep coming back when the treamtent runs out.

It is really handy working in a hospital. My Gastro doctor works 5 mins walk away. And blood tests are on the floor below. Still get annoyed though. Guess we all just want a miracle cure for everything all the time. Am i right ?

The hip thing is kinda worrying though, My Mother has really bad arthritis. dont wanna be going down that route.

I was just recently diagnosed, but I have had right hip pain (also dull aching) for 5 or 6 years.  I never have mentioned it to a doctor. (Part of me just doesn't want to know)  I know hip pain can actually come from the back.  Anyhow, my pain is mostly when I sleep on it.  I have no idea if it's related to my illness.
