Why do I have pain in my legs and hands?
Q: I am a 38 years old man having a lot of body pain, especially in my hands, legs and back. If I sit on the floor for a short duration, my legs become inactive. It seems there is some problem in the nervous system. I am a patient of ulcerative colitis too and as per the gastroenterologist it is in the remission phase. Please advise.
A:Your problem of pain in the hands, legs or back maybe an extra-intestinal manifestation of ulcerative colitis. It could also be due to malabsorption. Please consult a rheumatologist.
