Has anyone taken arthritis meds prior to the onset of being diagnosed with UC?

I had taken Dolobid a few years before diagnosis for horrific back spasms/pain. It worked well...and I didn't notice any side effects from it.

I don't believe that it's what caused me to have UC...

*Heather*Status:mini flare June 23* 6asacol daily+ Salofalk (tapered every 4th night)
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~Probiotic 2 (Natural Factors Protec) + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) at bedtime
~Natural Factors Multi Digestive Enzymes with supper
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)

I took NSAIDs for years for severe joint pains. They never caused me any problems. In fact, I still take Naproxen. My GI approved it because it doesn't affect my UC symptoms and it's basically the only thing that allows me to keep walking.
Left-sided UC diagnosed 2001.  Taking Colazal and Imuran, Remicade infusions and moving into remission. Finally off steroids after four years! 
Now in remission for almost two years. Remicade has been my wonder drug.
