Crohns Back Pain

I have had crohns disease for about 3 years. My new symptom I've had for about 9 months is horrible back pain...the pain is relieved somewhat when I have a bm. I had a CAT scan and 3rd...with no answers. Anyone have this?

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!
