I normally am on the crohn's forum but I am at my wit's end and was hoping I could get some ideas from you. A few weeks ago I started having diarrhea. I assumed a crohn's flareup, but also got my doc to test for a c-diff infection, which was negative. The diarrhea continues, and then I developed fevers and body aches. I thought virus or maybe they were wrong about the infection. The fevers didn't last long, but I am left with extreme pain in random areas of my body: both calves, both sides of neck, whether moving or not. Also some joint pain, swelling and redness. My darvocet only seems to make it bearable for a couple of hours. Then when it gets bad, I am in tears and can barely walk. My docs ran some blood tests but nothing seems to be out of the ordinary. I feel like my body is dying and forgot to tell my brain! Do any of you have anything like this, or any ideas? My docs just tell me to go to the ER if it gets any worse, and believe me the morphine is calling.
Thanks for your help.
