Hello, everyone!  I haven't posted here in a while with questions because I had been doing quite well, until now..... cry
I am in the midst of a bad Crohn's flare, but new symptoms are popping up that just don't seem Crohn's related.  I wonder if the stress of being ill with Crohn's can re-trigger my Fibro symptoms?  My symptoms are.....
 
1.  Sore tender points
2.  Headache
3.  Persistent anxiety
4.  Extreme fatigue
5.  Heavy, sore, weak legs
6.  Confusion/spacey
7.  Short of breath
8.  Eyes ache/feel heavy
9.  Tingling sensation in my hands, face, and feet
 
That's all I can think of for now, which is enough, lol!  I guess I'm just venting...... sad
Blessings, Julie

Yup-sounds like fibro to me. I know that stress can make fibro worse, so I would think that having a bad Crohn's flare could definitely "kick in" your fibro symptoms, so to speak.

I am sorry you are feeling so awful. Hang in there! I do hope your symptoms quiet down soon.
love and hugs

I'm sure the Chrones isn't helping one bit. Sorry you're having problems. Yes, it does sound like your fibro decided to come pay you a visit.. seems when we're having other health or stress issues the fibro kicks in.
Hope you're feeling better soon.
Hugs,
Patti

Sorry I am a little late in posting. I just wanted to thank you for the replies! Can Fibro cause fevers and "flu-like" symptoms also? Blessings, Julie

No.. I don't believe you will have a fever with Fibro.. achy flu-like symptoms Yes.. fever no.

Are you running a fever?? If so, you probably have a virus or some kind of infection.

Hope you're feeling better soon!! You've been sick for quite a while now.

Take care,
Patti

I think the Crohn's flare started first, which exacerbated a Fibro flare, and now I have a "bug" on top of it all. This is no fun, lol! Thank you for the replies. I feel like the saying, "Which came first, the chicken or the egg??!!" Blessings, Julie
