Re: Crohns Back Pain
doyle..are you on any medications for CD?
I have UC, and when I'm flaring, my lower back and radiating from my butt is a problem. I do, however, have back issues anyway, but flaring is a different aching pain.
I would suggest you ask your doctor to send you to a rheumatologist. He/she will take blood tests for markers, etc to see if your pain is directly related to autoimmune.
Some medications such as imuran or 6MP can cause back pain.
It's all a matter of perspective!
