Pam...I have extreme joint pain involved with my ulcerative colitis. RIght now I started flaring about
2 weeks ago and the joint pain has been unreal. My wrists, fingers, ankles, heels, and knees hurts. My dr gave me percocet because its really hard to function when I hurt this bad. Also I have 3 kids ages 7, 2, and 3 months. It is painful to hold my babies somedays which makes me sad.
I have been to a rheumatologist and they say it is just my system attacking itself because its autoimmune....its pretty much like a fake arthritis because it doesn't actually damage the joints but it hurts just the same.
Are you flaring right now?? When im not flaring my joint pain is soo much better.
