Jul 24, 2016 · I have Ulcerative colitis and wondered if anyone here has it in Digestive Health

I feel like I’m doing so much better because the digestive issues have settled dramatically. It’s really just the joint pain and stiffness that I have no idea what to do for

I find with the joint pain that it’s best to keep moving. I also take anti-inflammatory medicine rather than pain meds. That’s just what worked for me… But I know some people experience much worse pain than mine.

I was diagnosed about a year ago, but I think I’ve had it 20 to 30 years – maybe longer (I’m 60). There have been some stretches of remission but recently it got quite bad.

I started treatment with prednisone and Lialda. I weaned off the prednisone but the Lialda alone wasn’t enough to control my digestive symptoms. So I added imuron. Now I’m very stable, but the achiness still comes and goes. Pretty bad at times.

There was some talk about starting Humira, but I’d rather have less meds and took the more conservative route.
