Enteropathic Arthritis

Sun, September 05, 2021 3:44 PM


I am 46 years old and was diagnosed with UC when I was 14. I was tentatively diagnosed with Chron's in 2017 as I had a CT scan that confirmed two significant strictures in my small bowel, but subsequent colonoscopy, the GI doc didn't think I had Chron's. 

I have had joint pain since I was 15, but since the 2017 flare, I have had significant increase in finger, wrist, ankle, balls of my feet, costochondritis, and some sacroiliac pain. My hands are the absolute worst with my sometimes dropping objects, especially in the morning.

I am going to see a rheumatologist soon to determine whether or not I have enteropathic arthritis.

Do any of you suffer from this also?
