I may have asked these questions before...but here we go. Prior to getting dx w/ UC back in 1999, I had terrible arthritis pain that came on and progressed. I have these pains/attacks in my feet, between my big toe and next one, and in the general area on the bottom of my foot behind the toes. It can be just CRIPPLING PAIN! recently I have this happening in my hands. I have had it in my wrists intermittantly over the years. With my hands it is right between my pointer finger and the next one...BOTH HANDS hurt identically. Anyway, what do we know about UC patients with arthritis? I have had blood taken before and do not recall arthritis in the findings...TO ME I am concerned that this may be rheumatoid arthritis in nature. Botht sides of the body are affected in the identical areas. Any response is appreciated...not much I can do about it probably...

Is it joint pain? Joint pain is an extra-intestinal symptom of UC. I had it for 10 years before being DX. I was told it doesn't do permanent damage to the joints. I exercise to control mine.

Is there any swelling? The pain in your feet, have you been checked for Gout?

Haven't been checked for Gout. There seemed to be a little swelling between my fingers the other day. Probably the extraintestinal kind of pain eh?...The intensity is really overwhelming at times.
