Irritable bowel disease and arthritis now linked

For those of you who don’t know or haven’t experienced arthritis type symptoms, sometimes these symptoms can be an indication of underlying bowel inflammation that is getting worse.

Other times the link is still between these two diseases but isn’t necessarily an indication of what state the bowel inflammation is in.

Found this nice article that gives examples and explanation about the link between arthritis and irritable bowel disease like Crohn’s disease.

Personally I always suffer with bad arthritis-like symptoms whenever I go through a stretch of Prednisone or other variance of cortisone. I have found that these symptoms can last for months after I’ve stopped the cortisone treatment.

Something that helps is definitely yoga, even if it’s very painful the first few sessions.
