Hiya Mary
I have Burstitis in my shoulder, the muscularskeletal doc said this is common with Crohn's.
Here is a link on another burstitis, this one is in the hip.

Did you say that you have a fistula?
If so, your hip pain could be from that

At the beginning of my current flare (going on three years now...) I had CRAZY pain in my hip joints. It was almost unbearable. I didnt' know at the time that this was an indicator of a Crohn's flare! They went away after about a month, though the flare has persisted....

Hope you start to feel better soon! - Amy

Yes, me too.....I have severe pinching in my flank and wraps around into my back and down into my legs. When inflammation is present in my illium, it causes all the muscles around it to inflame also.

I'm another one with a comorbid autoimmune inflammatory arthritis, related to ankylosing spondylitis. Like AS, my psoriatic arthritis/undifferentiated spondyloarthropothy affects my hips, sacroiliac joints, spine, and most every other joint (in my case, and in many). If your pain is chronic, ask to be referred to a rheumatologist to get checked out for the spondyloarthropothies.
Dx: IBS '08, Psoriatic Arthritis/Undifferentiated Spondyloarthropothy, Sjogren's Syndrome, Psoriasis, Eczema, Hiatal Hernia with Reflux, Myofascial Trigger Point, Scoliosis, Carpal Tunnel, Tarsal Tunnel

Meds: Sulfasalazine, Relafen, Omeprazole, Plaquenil, Welchol, Hyoscyamine PRN, Tizanidine PRN, Fioricet PRN, Fluocinonide Cream, Vitamin D, Folic Acid
