23 years with crohn"s

hello my name is Jim. I was diagnosed with Crohn"s 23 years ago which consists of many blockages. After 4 surgeries I was put on Humira 3 years ago with great results until recently. The last three weeks I have been experiencing Arthritis symptoms in my back and legs which makes it very difficult to get out of bed and get moving. Has anybody else experienced these symptoms?

Welcome to the forum! Arthritis is very common with Crohn's. Best thing to do is try to get in with a Rheumatologist to figure out what exactly is going on. Most of the time Humira helps with arthritis pain and symptoms but this is not always the case.
