Hi friends, I finally realized on Friday I had just had my first flare. For the last month I've been really, really tired. I couldn't even go work out, which I had done since I recovered from my resection last year. Unable to function but it came on so gradually I thought it was just normal. Then on Friday, even with a terrible head cold, it came to me that I felt so much better. I had taken Thursday off because of the cold and got plenty of rest. Friday and Saturday, even with babysitting the grandchildren, I felt totally different. I wasn't sleepy and my bm's were normal, not soft. I have IBS also so I have a hard time figuring out what is what. Today I felt awful. No energy and my tail bone is killing me. I have to get an answer for that. It was even keeping me up during the night. It seems that my biggest symptom is fatigue. Even at my worst my BMs are only 4-5 times a day.
My tailbone is really hurting. I really need to find out what is going on. I think I should contact my PCP before my GI to rule out anything other then crohn's problems.
my granddaughter wanted to see what the smilies where. That's why there are so many of them.
