Crohn's can affect the joints. See the related link below for more information.

The inflammation that appears with both Crohn's and UC often shows up in other area's of the body like joints.

The symptoms are pain, swelling and joint stiffness that flare up and then go away, then flare up again. The more severe the IBD the more severe the Arthritis.

When the joints are involved in combination with IBD the diagnosis is call IBD Arthritis.

Treatment often amounts to moist heat and cold packs, bed rest when severe,non steroidal anti- inflammatory medications like ibuprofen.

Can improper cleaning of lettuce cause crohn's disease?

No. It is very unlikely that unrinsed lettuce would cause Crohns disease. Medical experts have been searching for the cause of this disease for years. Unrinsed produce may cause diarrhea and cramping from e-coli or other food borne bacteria but you will not get Crohns disease from it.
