I was having problems with my knees. I couldnt walk for long periods of time before they would begin to hurt. They also started to give out on me in the middle of walking,but once I got of the steriods I haven't had much trouble with them.

Joint pain can really be bad and make you miserable. I have knee, back elbow and toe pains. Along with neck pain. I went to a rheumatologist a few years ago and he diagnosed me with migratory arthritis from UC. He put me on a very low dose of prednisne which did help. I just don't want to have to go thru life on it. I haven't been back to him but I do tell my GI about it. Just one of the perks with IBD. I hope you feel better soon.
Current meds are:
Asacol 6 pills a day
Lexapro 20 mg once a day
Ativan .5 mg when needed
Canasa when needed
