Hello and good morning to everyone
I notice that there have been numerous posts about RA sufferers and IBS or Colitis etc.
Last year I had three bouts of Diverticulitis and each time my joints flared up ( pre diagnosis) when I mentioned this to my GP he just frowned and said 'That's odd' .
My question is .....is it?
Yesterday after a hideous panful episode in the loo, with rectal blood etc. my joints became so painful, I hardly slept. And today I feel wasted.
I see there is research and there is a proven propensity for Crohns and Ulcerative colitis patients to have related RA but anyone else with Diverticular disease?
Would be interested if anyone has any information on this.
I was hospitalised with diverticulitus,but i can't remember if my ra flared or not.I should see your doctor Monday if you can and get it checked out.xxx
