Two years or so ago, 2 years into being diagnosed with crohns, i had a horrible pinch in my right hip. I as literally crying and couldnt stand or walk. Had mom tske me to the er. They said tey had no idea what it was from.. Maybe some sort of sciatica or back problem. Two years later, and a few more hopeless er visits, my gastroenterologist did a ct scan for a trial i was doing and diagnosed me with sacroilitis.. Veryyyy common with crohns disease. Inflamation cause the joints and bones in your ack and hps to basically squeeze things gether, they get stand ause this horrible pan. It gets so bad, when im having a flare up especially, that i cant even walk. Awful! But my doctor put me on lortbs when need them and suggedted cortizone shots.very nervous about that. But i ache allllll the time. Woke up feeling like a bus hit me.. Shoulders, lower back, knees, hips killing me. Sort of elieviates during the day, as i get busy and active, and now the pinch has come back. I have an awful time sleeping because of it all. And another thing. My feet killlll me, even when i havent been on them much at all during the day.
You're not alone. Arthritis and sacroilitis are very commo with rohn.
