Question: Arthritis and IBD

If you notice that your arthritis is flaring is this a strong sign that you IBD is also flaring? and how long of having symptoms is safe to put of seeing you GI?

Certainly arthritis could be a sign that IBD is active. In fact, at times arthritis could be the only sign that IBD is active (meaning no gastrointestinal symptoms).
