My gastro doc is sending me to a rheumatologist to be sure we aren't missing anything - my appointment is Friday. I've had rashes for the past six months that come and go. Some itched and looked like hives while others just appeared with no other symptoms. I have also had pretty rough back pain, pain in my left hand with stiffness, and shoulder pain. Does this all sound like just the wonderful side effects of UC? I am not expecting much from the rheumatologist visit, just because so much of this stuff is a guessing game.
