... for it? I also am also experiencing bad stomach problems. They keep getting worse and worse... I took accutane 2006, 2007. The joint pain has gotten really bad, and a regular thing, and is getting in the way of my career and I"m tryign to track down the cause
If your dr hasn't already run tests for auto immune disease I suggest that you start there. Do your joints get swollen or red? You need to get some control of the pain. Have you tried things like aleve?
I have experienced the same symptoms. I took Accutane in the mid 80's and am now post menopausal. Unfortunately my joint pains have gotten worse. I also have stomach issues as well. I continue to search for alternative/natural treatments since doctors don't seem to have any answers other than pain meds.
I have not really found much yet. I continue to search. Please let me know if you have discovered anything helpful. Don't give up!
