Not feeling so well lately. Everyone else can see it on my face too. They say I look real tired and worn down. That's exactly how I feel too. I was doing so much better for a while with that. I had even stopped taking a nap every day like I was. Had some stress, which seems to be all it takes. Had a real bad diarrhea and pain attack yesterday and this morning had pain that I swore was going to be a repeat. But luckily it passed. Kinda worried because in the past feeling like this has lead to flares. Before my GI bleed I looked really crappy, very pale (which I don't think I am right now) and so very tired. I don't want to worry, only will make it worse.
 
Oh and I've also had some body pains, mainly in my back and shoulders. Probably completely unrelated, but I don't know. Just feel generally yucky.
 
Does anyone else get these pre-"warning" signs, and do you do anything to help try and turn it around? I guess more rest and sleep would be a good start, and trying to reduce stress. I was doing so well, I so don't want to flare!

Is your attack after you eat like a gallbladder attack these can have pain that go into the shoulder and back,do you still have your gallbladder . IT will give you an over all ill feeling if you still have your gallbladder have your doc send you for an ultra sound of it ,its a painless test.

Thanks to you both. Sugarmarie, I had my gallbladder out back in 2001. So it's not that. It feels more like pulled or sore muscles. Just sore and achy.

gachrons, I have been doing a lot this summer. My Mom had surgery earlier in the month and I was doing a ton over there for her. Then once she was well enough for me to not be there as often I had projects that I started working on here at home (cleaning out some closets ect..). I've probably over done it. Just stinks that I can't even do that much without having things act up! I feel like such a cream puff! LOL

I rested quite a bit today, but I think it's going to take more then one day of rest to get me feeling better. No stomach pain or D today, so that was good! Fingers are crossed.
