Hi everyone and Happy New Year! I was just wondering if many people get painful joints in the knees due to IBD?
For the past few years, I’ve experienced it whether I’m standing, sitting, or lying down but recently I’ve noticed it’s got worse and it also happens now after I’ve passed a stool.
When I feel the pain I have to stretch my legs and ‘click’ my joints, which sometimes helps but sometimes it doesn’t. I haven’t been diagnosed with IBD but after suffering from the symptoms for about 3 1/2 years, getting told I had IBS and then my symptoms getting worse this year, I have been referred for an endoscopy and biopsy.
I was just wondering if painful joints is related to IBD and if anyone else suffers from this?
