PMID: 30829736.


Pain affects over 70% of individuals with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), with abdominal and musculoskeletal pain representing the most common complaints. Musculoskeletal pain in IBD is reported to be associated with multiple clinical features, however the scope and nature of pain is not well understood. Primary aims were to identify subgroups of musculoskeletal pain in individuals with IBD based on clinical features of pain, and assess how these subgroups differ in aspects of demographics, comorbidity, and IBD characteristics.
