Long time lurker, first time poster.
Been in remission on 6mp for 7 years but over last 1.5 years have battled fatigue, flitting joint issues, mild nausea, muscle pain and a whole host of mild chronic issues. Have been checked by a rheumy and an endocrine doctor and nothing shows up so the verdict is this is my UC acting up. Bowel symptoms are minimal just looser stools than normal with no blood and only little mucus. Have tried supplements, dietary changes and enemas but the low grade chronic inflammation and symptoms persist.
I feel I should now push for biologicals to try and fully return to remission because even though my bowel is holding these other mild symptoms are affecting quality of life after 18 months. Is it overkill to look to be put on a biological for these other symptoms?
What are your thoughts?
