Can IBS Cause Swelling And Joint Pain

Can IBS Cause Swelling And Joint Pain

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

Sadly going doesn't relieve symptoms for me. When flaring with my stomach it can last for weeks. Thankfully stomach is calm at the minute but still having joint pain.
