i'm in the middle of having tests to see why i have been so unhealthy for such a long time.. im currently being treated for crohns if thats any help...
im just so tired all the time, my legs ache terribly and my arms, i cant function and im always so emotional, no matter how much sleep i get, i dont quite benefit from, infact ive learnt better to run on little rather than too much. i dont have much of an appetite, ive been working on building it up but the second i feel hunger, i need to lay down because suddenly im too hungry.. i dont know..just wondered if i should mention this condition to my doctor...

Hi pix, it's definitely worth mentioning to your doctor - your doc needs to know all of your symptoms in order to diagnose and treat you. I know that chrohn's can make people feel really rotten too, so if you have chrohns that could explain a lot of your symptoms. WHen will you know about your tests? Let us know what you find out.

Take care

Diagnosis:  Suspected Lupus 2004; Raynauds 2006; Sjogren's 2006; CFS 1991; Mono 1985

Meds:  Plaquenil 400mg; Tramadol 100mg 3-4x daily; Amitriptyline 10mg; Neurontin 200mg; Steriod Cream and Mouth Rinse for tongue and mouth ulcers; Hydrocodone 5/500 prn for severe pain
