I am new to this forum and relatively new to arthritis. I have recently been diagnosed with enteropathic arthritis, an arthritis that is related to my Chrons-colitis. Yesterday I had my second jab of Depo Medrone and already feeling much more human. I am also nearly up to the full dose of sulphazalazine.

Any other enteropathic arthritis suffers out there?

    Hi Moodymoo

    Your user name did make me smile :smile:
    I am sorry I can't help you with your arthritis, I have Ra. I just wanted to welcome you to the forum.

    I am pleased to read that you say you are feeling the benefit of the medrone injection and the sulpha. I hope this feeling gets even better by the day.
    Take care

    Oooooh, what a smashing user name! It's lovely to meet you but I am sorry you have had to find us - no matter what sort of arthritis it is I reckon we can all relate to the difficulties it brings. I have PA and OA (psoriatic and osteo) and am not having a particularly good day today, so I cannot think of anything encouraging or inspiring to say, for which I apologise. :oops: I do, however, wish you well.

    hi, I have ulcerative colitis and also enthesopathy which is arthritis not of the joint but of the enthesis so the bit at which tendons and ligaments meet the joint. Nice to meet you.

    Hi Moody,

    Welcome to the forum, I am sorry I have no advice to offer but if you go to the search button at the top of the screen you might come across some posts on the subject.

    Glad the jab has worked for you and you are beginning to feel better in yourself.

    Hi Moody

    I think that Pickle and Fed Up suffer from enteropathic arthritis. Hopefully they may see your thread and reply.

    The happiest people don't have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything.

    If you can lay down at night knowing in your heart that you made someone's day just a little bit better, you know you had a good day.
