i had UC related arthritis for about
3 months with this flare (still going after a year grrrr)
then it just went away out of nowhere.
i looked like i was 80 when i walked up and down stairs. my knees and ankles were shot.
they hurt so bad and were all swollen.
i lost like 40lbs from this flare and i was super skinny with fat ankles. kinda funny looking.
it did go away tho and havent had any other symptoms since
50mg prednisone 1x day morning
50mg imuran 1x day night
2x 500mg mesalazine 2x day + night
2.5mg endone (oxycontin) every 4-6 hours
