Hallo Mrs Williams
Mouth ulcers can be caused by inflammatory bowel diseases ( which can also cause joint pain and stiffness) so I think he should see a gastroenterologist for a full medical examination and blood tests. Certain medications like Voltaren and Brufen used for sore joints can trigger mouth ulcers, as well as toothpaste containing sodium lauryl sulphate.
