I sometimes get swelling of the facial features such as lips and nose. Does anybody else get this? I think it might be due to an alergic reaction to a food. But I can never nail down which one. Any comments would help-Luke

Swelling in lips and face? I have cosmetic allergies and do that on occasion, but not from IBS. I have currently given up any hope of looking good in a swimsuit becasue I look pregnant. I'm having to wear boys clothes. I've looked odd for over a month and a half. Does the swelling ever go down? Laterbye

Joint pain can be caused by IBD. The inflammation affects the joints similar to rheumatoid arthritis. I have had bad problems with my knees in the past
Also, if you're on pred, that can cause joint pain. Talk to your doctor about somethjing that might help. The only real way to get rid of it is getting into remission.Kate
