I have crohn's disease and have had joint pain and swelling before i was even diagnosed. The doctor's are saying the joint pain is related to the crohn's. Lately the pain and swelling in my fingers has gotten worse. I now have pain in my toe joints, hips, ankles, and wrists. I itch like crazy although there are no rashes. Last night i woke up with chills...not sure of a fever though. I am so tired...wasn't sure if it is due to my medication or something else. my muscles feel tight and i just don't feel like doing anything. Does anyone relate or have any suggestions. I want to see a rheumy but don't have insurance.

But He said to me, "My grace is enough for you. When you are weak, my power is made perfect in you." So I am very happy to brag about my weaknesses. Then Christ's power can live in me. For this reason I am happy when I have weaknesses, insults, hard times, sufferings, and all kinds of troubles for Christ. Because when I am weak, then I am truly strong.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10
