Yes, there is an arthritis associated with inflammatory bowel disease (UC and Crohn’s). It usually involves a few large joints at a time, most frequently a knee or ankle but sometimes a wrist. The joints are active when the colon is active.
Arthritis related to ulcerative colitis
Is there a connection between ulcerative colitis and arthritis of the large joints? I have had left side colon pain for years and now have swelling,warmth and pain in my knees, large toe joint, one ankle, and one wrist.
