Now that my UC is gone fine I have the pouch, I’m dealing with inflammation in other areas. My Sed rate and and C-reactive protein are all elevated and have been since before my surgery.
My gastro doc has just told me that he doesn’t think it’s related to my previous colitis diagnosis. He sent me to a rheumatologist. She’s checking for lupus, Lyme disease, and diff types of arthritis. My whole body aches, it hurts to bend down or squat bc my knees a and feet hurt. My hips are pretty bad too.
Anyhow, I’m only 38 and in relatively good shape. Idk what to think or where to go from here. Has this happened to anyone else too?? Do y’all think it’s related to the previous inflammation with my UC?
