Hello all, its been a while since i've posted.
Most of us UC sufferers have been experiencing joint pain and i have been in the boat for about 3 years now.
Starting with just back pain, its moved to my knee ribs etc. Which i have been told that is common in a condition called anklosing spondyitis, which im told i have :(
However recently i've been having hip pain for 3weeks now and finding it hard to move around, sleep etc does anyone know if this is common with this condition? or could be something else? Im really worried after reading a post on "not to take prednisolone" and the effects it has of causing avascular nercrosis. I dont know if there is reason to worry, but does anyone know more about this conditon, and how it can be diagnosed for sure.
Diagnosed in 2001,
Since then i have flared seven times,
Currently on Asacol 6 tabs a day. Recently diagnosed with osteopenia.
