I have recently got the arthritis diagnosis having had the colitis for about four years. The problem is I can't find a med that doesn't make the colitis flare up. Have tried sulfasalazine but that was really bad.

    Greetings @Jacquesea You have recenty received a diagnosis of Polyarthriitis to add to your colitis and are having dificulties finding an acceptable medication that doesn't cause a colitis flare. I take sulfasalzine, but without colitis I find it OK apart from the occasional gripe. Heres a link to our general arthritis information

    Do keep liasing bewtween your colitis and rheumatoid teams. There ae injections available that may help.

    We look forward to hearing of your progress. Keep safe and cheerful.
