I am wondering if any of my fellow Jpouch folks out there been diagnosed with Seronegative Arthritis? I am about 3 years since my Jpouch surgery. I suffered  with Ulcerative Colitis for over 10 years and was on Prednisone for a long time. I had suffered with Joint pain; however after I weaned off Prednisone the joint and muscle pain got much worse. It seems the prednisone had masked my symptoms somewhat. I wound up at a Rheumatologist and was diagnosed with Seronegative Arthritis or Inflammatory Bowel Arthritis as the Doc told me.

Anyone else been diagnosed with this?

After many years of joint pain I was diagnosed with seronegative rheumatoid arthritis approximately two years ago. I was first prescribed Prednisone and later was prescribed Humira. Before I had J Pouch surgery earlier this year I stopped the Humira and was started on Prednisone (4 mg) again. It seems to work pretty well for me.
