I am 26 years old and have had crohns for over 15 years, I havent had any bad flare ups for a long time, Lately it's not so much a stomach thing, I do know what causes me to flare and watch carefully but lately I've been having alot of back and joint pain. I dont know if this is related to crohns or not? I had some blood done and they didn't find high level of inflamation,could having crohns make this test show up less since I deal with it all the time? I'm really just not sure what to do but my bones just seem to hurt so much I dont want to do anything. Anyone else have this?View Thread
