Fevers in adults with known Crohn's should be evaluated by your physician. I am glad you are going to get this checked out. Keep us posted on what you find out.Hugs
Hey debbikay, sorry you not feeling well.For adults, a body temperature over 100° is usually considered a fever.I think calling your physician was a good idea. Let us know.
Recently diagnosed with Crohn's. I get random fevers around 99 to 99.7. I had cataract surgery 6 days ago and started running a fever of 102° yesterday. I was afraid it was an infection in my eye but it seems fine. Which doc do I call? The GI guy? The eye surgeon? I also have diabetes. It's almost like the flu with very bad joint pain, especially in my hands. Would an antibiotic help. I don't take any meds for Cronh's as of yet. How long do these Crohn's fevers last?
Thank you Girlzilla. I have gotten much more info from this site than I have from the doc I see about Crohn's. It's kind of a relief to know I'm not the only one going through this. At the same time I'm sorry so many suffer with this problem. The number of people who have posted here really blew my mind. Now, if a President suffered from this disease, we'd all know everything there is to know about it! I have a lot to learn.
Thank you NiceCupofTea. I've got so many other things going on…diabetes, scleroderma (from CREST),arthritis it's hard to know which doc to call. From what I've read here so far, I think the GI doc would be the call to make. At least now that I've read some of what you all have to say, I'll have some questions for him. He really hasn't given me what to expect with CD. Do you have painful joints in your hands too?
