Two new symptoms have come up with my daughter this week:  knee pain and eye pain.  Her eye is also red, kind of like pink eye.  Dr wants us to see an opthamologist and an rhuematologist.  Anyone else have these symptoms with UC?

Latest-Finally tapering off prednisone 5mg every week.. Staying on Lialda 2 twice a day. Currently colonoscopy shows remission. Apparently my symptoms are from my IBS side of my issues.
Medications:Prednisone 35mg, Lialda 2 twice a day, Align probiotic, Anti-spasmodic as needed.
I am so sick of this disease!

my eyes get red and feel like they are inflamed when I eat too many eggs.

Definately get her in to the eye doc ASAP. Uc'ers have a tendancy of getting eye infections and if it's Irisitis (sp?) and if it's not taken care of, it can lead to blindness. There is also a connection of having Uc and Dry Eye Syndrome.
