Joint pain

Thu, June 30, 2022 9:58 AM

Hello, I'm newly diagnosed with Crohn's and came to the diagnosis in a roundabout way. I have been experiencing terrible joint pain for two years which completely overshadowed my GI symptoms. During my flares I was unable to walk and even in non-flare times the joint pain limits my movement and activity. Finally I was sent to a gastroenterologist who found it was Crohn's. I know joint pain is common with Crohn's but I am wondering if anyone else has had such a journey or experiences joint pain as their worst symptom?
