Do proctitis, colon polyp, haemorrhoids and hiatus hernia cause knee and back problems?

Hi I am 20 years old 5"2 and around 8 stone and have been having severe abdomen pain and cramps since November last year.
I have recently been diagnosed with proctitis, a colon polyp, haemorrhoids and a hiatus hernia. I have suffered from mouth and tongue ulcers since I was 4 but my doctor said it was normal but they have been coming along much more bigger and are making it hard to talk and swallow also my knees and back are causing me a lot of trouble

Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.

Since you have got Proctitis, colon polyp, hemorrhoids means you have a severe Gastrointestinal upset.
Till this is cured the aphthous and aphthoid ulcers (more than 3 mm) will be recurrent..
Since all these disorders do not allow the important food contents like mineral , trace elements and vitamins to be adsorbed properly you get multiple problems including bodyache, knee pains, backache and any sort of problem related to the fitness.

I would advise you to get a proper treatment of all your medical problems, take multivitamins, get colon polyp operated, have proper diet , whichever suits you, and you can improve a lot.
Have periodic check-ups.
