Im not quite as sick today which is the first time i can say that in weeks! No fever today, less joint pains, less d, little more energy. the weird hot/cold flashes in my feet arent as bad either. I need a few more days of this to think that maybe things are gonna start to look up for once...but im not counting on it based on history!
I went to my primary doctor yesterday and he decided to run a whole plethora of blood work to make sure theres nothing else beside GI issues going on. That should take a few days. In the meantime he gave me ultram 200 mg er tablets to take so that sholud hold me over with the joint pain, stomach cramps until we get some results back. Took 1 last night and was effective thankfully. so far today haven't needed any.
alot of times this stuff can be very confusing. with lowered immunity, i am a revolving door of disease which may masquerade as one long term ilness when in fact i may just have a series of infections or viruses.. or even pred withdrawal or pred itself. its hard to tell whats what. every night i go to sleep and hope that i wake up feeling less sick. i started out pretty rough today but got better as the day went on.
UC/Chrons since age 22, now 27. Several huge flares since then. Entire colon diseased at some point from cecum to rectum. Also had previous inflammation in terminal ileum.
