I've had ribcage pain frequently over the years. Pain in fingers, toes, wrists, chest, elbows, knees, hips, SI as well. My joint pain started before I had any UC symptoms. My ribcage pain is always both sides and does not necessarily happen when I have a UC flare. I believe costochondritis was my diagnosis at some point. I have left sided pain up under my ribcage that is different from the costochondritis. This pain is newer and seems to be associated with my current flare. I think it's the left sided colitis. A CT in March showed I also have cysts in my spleen which have grown over the years. So my GI wasn't able to rule that out as a contributing factor.
