I am. I debated back and forth about
contacting my doctor. I've never had bleeding, I don't lose weight, I do have "d" but it has been better lately, but I do have fistulizing Crohn's. My tailbone area has been extremely painful for about
6-8 weeks and getting progressively worse. Now it's my whole rear end. Even had a x-ray but nothing showed up. Started running a slight fever. 99.2-99.8. My normal temp is 97.8. Do I call or don't I? Got my answer when I got a sudden sharp pain in my gut. I'm scheduled for a CT scan on Thursday and a GI appointment Friday. I guess it is better to be safe then sorry.
My suggestion is to call and give them your symptoms. Let them make the decision if they need to see you. Now if I'd only take my own advice.
