Hi Judy and thank you, the UC is totally under control and has been for a good few months. Unfortunately I've been diagnosed with arthritis related to the UC, but they're not sure which kind. It's driving me daft. I'm very worried what the future holds and whether I will be able to continue my work.
Thought I had got lucky when the UC started to respond!
I've been on sulfasalazine for about
2 months in the hope that would help the arthritis, but nothing so far. I have it bad in both shoulders, and my lower back has now started to get very bad now.
From my research, I think it seems to be increasingly likely to be axial arthritis or AS.
How are you?
Diagnosed Indeterminate Colitis 25/11/2007 (update: told by consultant 15/01/08 in his opinion definitely UC).
