Thanks for the empathetic words. I haven't decided whether to visit the doc about this. First of all, I don't really have a doc right now since my PCP left private practice and I'm hesitant about calling up the GI because he was totally flabbergasted about my case before and I doubt it will be any different now. The only different symptom since he saw me last summer is this fever. Hmm...I think I'm going to wait it out a little longer to see if it goes away on its own.
Thanks again, chicas.
Keri, yes, I had a long-term low-grade temp for quite a while there that made me feel just plain ick, and that too went away when the guts started regulating themselves. I hope this doesn't last as long as the previous "flare" did (what was it, almost a year?!). I haven't started back on that nightmarish regimen of probiotics, vitamins, fish oil, calcium, and fiber supplements yet; I didn't really notice that it changed much for the two months I tried 'em, and the remission came on without their help. Still, I bought myself some of that Activia yogurt for a trial period...couldn't hurt.
The boy is great. He pumps me up by calling me a trooper and he'll go out and get me yummies like Gatorade, peppermint tea, and gummi bears when I'm not up for real food. He keeps me feeling uplifted. Pretty blissful to have him in my life. Yeehaw!
