Can IBS Cause Swelling And Joint Pain

A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

It's come about over the last few months where my fingers are swollen and the joints sore mainly on my right hand. Also it seems to be affecting my shoulder and neck. For many years I've had lower back issues and sciatica.

I have pain in my hands, left shoulder, neck, lower left abdomen and back. When the IBS flares, I am miserable. Down in bed for the day, tossing and turning, feeling miserable.

When my ribs acts up, it seems that everything aches and swells. Cutting down on gluten products and most " junk food" helps me

I go through the same thing. My ibs has always gone into my lower back. Then I get burning in my vagina from all the inflammation

Oh yes! I have IBS and I think there is a connection to my lower back pain, achy joints and muscles. Now I have achy legs. I think it’s all connected. All very frustrating!
