Please explain your joint pain

I get pain in ankles, wrists, fingers, lower back. Only last a few seconds then it goes. Comes & goes in different areas all the time. Recently woke up without being able to straighten elbow. Fine a couple of days later then pain would come back for 1 day then ok for a couple more and now sore again tonight. I’m in remission. No swelling & not warm to touch. Could this Be related to IBD or just part of ageing??

    Hi @julesb,

    I too would often get these joint pains which sound similar to what you are experiencing and I know mine isn’t manifesting due to age. Just to be cautious, I would speak to your doctor and let him/her know what is going on. It could be some inflammation trying to creep back in and the root cause sounds like IBD.

    Just a little tip, for me whenever I would have joint pain, for some quick relief I would use essential oils. They would really ease the discomfort and of course are completely natural. It’s a nice tool to have around.

    I hope you feel better and find answers! Maybe even ask your doctor to check your CRP levels? See if it’s high?

    Wishing you the best in health.
