g.turner, welcome! I have had Crohn's for 3 years now and I have had joint pain while taking prednisone. It would feel like all my joints were 80 years old (I'm 21)! Stretching would help me a bit but it always felt really good to stretch. I wish I could provide some more info but again, welcome!

Hi, G. Wecome to the forum :)

I've been having problems w/my joints as well, especially my sacroiliac joint (lower right back/hip/groin area). Doc said Humira may help it and I've started taking Move Free to see if that does anything. Also hopefully starting physical therapy soon!

Another member, VShirey (Vanessa), and I joke that we're in our 90's because it makes us feel so old (but we're only in our 20's).

Definitely ask your doc!
