I find that the mesalamine lessens the colitis symptoms, but some times my body hurts so much that moving becomes difficult. My doctor said it was the colitis causing my joints to swell and bruise, but I didn't have that problem until I took mesalamine
Muscle aches occur in about 20% of patients taking meslamine.

All the best.
