I did have temps, running from 100-102. If it's below 100, it's hard to really consider that a temperature (it can fluctuate over the day up to the mid-99's), so if I were you I'd only count the ones that rise above 100.
They are tricky because just like you, my docs couldn't figure out where they were coming from. They made me feel just gross all over. I took Tylenol like candy most of the time. They thought I had IBD, but couldn't find anything grossly inflamed in there; they thought it was parasites, which made more sense, because I've traveled to a ton of developing countries and have gotten sick with them in the past. That's when they put me on Flagyl, which helped a lot. Still, there's no real resolution.
If you are in a lot of pain, a lot of serious acute rolling-on-the-floor pain, call your on-call doc, or go to an urgent care clinic or the ER and they'll be able to give you IV pain meds. Try to stay away from the NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) like Motrin - they have the potential to make your guts bleed.
Thanks everyone for your support. I'm feeling better today than in the past week....seems to be subsiding. I'm still only having mucus BM's but the pain is much improved. I haven't had to take anymore Advils since yesterday afternoon but I tried Tylenol the other night....no luck. I just have to take the chance with Advil when the pain gets so bad. I couldn't get to work if I didn't which would be a big problem. I work in home healthcare and have 23 patients in their homes sustained on life support (ventilators) for whom I am responsible!!
As I look at my attacks, they appear to be triggered by stressful events more than anything else. I'm considering medical hypnosis at this point. When my GI gets back and I express my concerns about what happened in his absence, if he doesn't respond in what I consider an appropriate manner, he's fired!! I deal with doctors everyday and act as a patient advocate for my patients so I have no qualms about viewing my physicians as people I hire to "repair" the problem!!
Thanks again for the support.
