Arachnoiditis + Crohn's disease 10 years, 8 months ago #529

  • Catriona
I was diagnosed with post-myelogram arachnoisditis in 1992. I developed Crohn's disease in 2004 and some literature suggests there may be a link between these two conditions. Has anyone else with arachnoiditis developed Crohn's disease later?

Hi Catriona
I developed chronic bowel problems after epidural steroid injections, which includes muscle damage, colitis and scarring (granulomas). I was diagnosed as having total spine arachnoiditis 7 years later! From the literature I've read, it does appear that many sufferers get bowel and bladder problems.
Sorry not to have better news - if you need a good gastric specialist in the UK, let me know.
Best Wishes Helen
