I recently found out that I am not a good candidate for Imuran. My body wont metabolize it and could cause bone marrow supression. I am not sure what I am going to do now, methotrexate maybe. I recently went off the predisone after several years and went to enticourt, a cortisone steroid for the colon but suddenly had severe arthritis symptoms that crippled me for over a week, I could barely get from bed to the couch. I wasn't having much of a flare from the UC just minor symptoms but my sedimentation rate jumped from a 37 to a 67in a week and I dont know why, it had to be linked to the pain in my joints, I had to go back on the pred. and the pain got better. I am kind of lost and any info would help, since my GI had to close his practice and I am having trouble getting another one. Can anyone offer and answers? I got a test for RA and Lupus but it was negative. THANK GOD. but what was causing the crippling pain?
