I'm currently in quite a severe flare of my UC and I'm waiting to start Infliximab infusions at Hospital. I'm really struggling with my hip pain (that my Consultant has told me is due to my IBD) and it's becoming quite debilitating when I'm walking. I was told by my IBD Nurse not to use Ibuprofen and only paracetamol. Now the paracetamol isn't touching the pain and she has told me not to use codeine as it can constipate me. When I asked what I can use she told me to go and ask my GP, but I can't get an appointment until a weeks time. So, in the meantime I wanted to ask what other fellow IBD sufferers have been told they can take for pain and what advice they have been offered. Many thanks in advance
