    I've never had an RA test done but when I have IBS or colitis flares it often comes with low back and sometimes knee pain.

      I finally learned about something called non-arthritic autoimmune joint pain. But, since it doesn't seem to be too common no one takes me seriously 😐

        thats interesting. My back pain and knee pain are explained by other issues, but its worse when my stomach acts up.

    Yes! I swore I had RA. Are you on lialda/Mesalamine? It caused me horrible joint pain 😥 I finally realized it once I quit taking it

    Yes; arthritis (primarily of the larger joints, like hips) is an extra intestinal manifestation (ie UC symptoms outside the intestine; there are many) of UC
