In brief: Colitis does this

Ulcerative colitis, one of the inflammatory bowel diseases (ibd) along with crohn's disease, predominantly causes abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
However, when the colitis or crohn's is active, extra-intestinal manifestations can arise - this means the inflmmatory bowel disease affects parts of the body outside the GI tract. Joint pain is the most common extra-intestinal manifestation of ibd.

In brief: YES

Certain forms of autoimmune, inflammatory colitis can cause joint pain, particularly in the sacroiliac joints, which connect your sacrum (butt bone) to the hip bones, but it doesn't always.
To image this, MRI is the most sensitive, but also the most pricey. A cheaper but much less sensitive method is xray, and a mid-range technique which involves radiation would be a bone scan.
