I'm not doing very well lately.  For the past week, I feel like I have flu-like symptoms.  I have had blood work, stool samples, and urine samples, and everything comes back normal.  I am in a Crohn's flare, though.  My new symptoms are:
 
1. Feeling feverish with NO fever
2. Back pain, mid-back and lower back (near my kidneys)
3. Intermittent nausea
4. Aches
5. Sore, weak legs
6. Fatigue
 
Again, all tests are fine.  I just don't get it.  I never feel this way.  The low back pain is really bothersome.
Does anyone else experience any of these symptoms?
 
Thank you so much for your time.
 
Blessings, Julie

I have been feeling a lot of the same symptoms as you for the past month. All my tests came back normal. My GI is thinking of putting me in the hospital just so we can do a bunch of tests. I dont know how much longer I can keep going on like this. It is so hard.

Very common for the blood tests to come back normal and you still be in a flare. Many of us have experienced the same thing. I was flaring last month and did my blood work and it came back normal for the SED RATE and borderline low on just about everything else, but I still felt like poop. Hope you get feeling better soon.

Hi Julie, yes these symptoms are all too familiar. Thanks also for your post on my thread. Seems like we're in the same boat hon!!!!

i always love these questions, there aren't many symptoms it doesn't cause :)

I've had my bloodwork come back fine and also when my doctor palapted my abdomen, he didnt feel anything, but it hurt like hell. No, we're not crazy.

Hi Julie,

I believe I am in a flare right now as well, and I have had those symptoms, as well as some others. I feel really hot and then freezing cold, but I don't have a fever. And my fatigue right now is awful! I don't want to do anything!

I hope you feel better soon and get past this quickly! Not feeling well is so miserable!
