Joint pain

Initially my first and main symptom is pelvic/hip pain and recently I have discovered that this could be joint pain due to crohns. It is so severe that I struggle to walk on some days. Is this normal for anyone else? Does anyone have any tips on how to help relieve the pain please?

  1. what is your diet? specifically what do you eat?

    1. So sorry you are dealing with this pain, it sounds awful. I would get horrific joint pain when I was first diagnosed but it turned out it was due to a medication I was on. Are you on any medication? Could it be possible it is a side effect? In the meantime, warm baths with epsom salt should help. -Elizabeth (inflammatoryboweldisease.net team member)
