Yes, different organ: Ulcerative colitis effects the colon and rectum. Pelvic inflammatory disease (pid) effects the uterus and fallopian tubes. These organs are next to each other so symptoms can be similar.

I have ulcerative colitis but also have chronic inflammation in duodenum. So can ulcerative colitis and tropical sprue occur together as I am INDIAN.

If you are having such symptoms, you need to discuss them with your own physician or a gastroenterologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can joint issues occur in Crohn's disease without a known Crohn's (intestinal) flare? I have Crohn's disease and what led the physicians to that diagnosis was my chronic knee effusions. I was offically diagnosed with Crohn's properly and was aggressibley
Often : Often times, the joint disease can serve as a "barometer" for underlying GI inflammation in patients with crohn's disease. There can be low-grade GI inflammation even without overt symptomatology. One cannot say with certainty, but i would be suspicious that you may, in fact, have some mild intestinal inflammation and you might want to check back in with your gastroenterologist for additional input on the subject. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
