Does anyone else on here ever have days where you feel pretty much just fine then the next day the nauseau, "D", and lethargy are really strong?  Is that part of IBD, to feel pretty good one day and get sick the next?
Thanks for all your replies both now and in the past!  It is great to have others I can relate to!  I hope my questions do not seem weird or dumb or anything!  :-)

First of all your questions are never weird or dumb....look at the rest of the posts...we are all in the same glorious boat. Yes it is just crohn's to have a great day followed by a bad day. I will have days when I am convinced that I am in remission or near to it, and then I wake up the next day having a horrid crohns day and get a reminder that remission is just a bit farther away. Unfortunately it is unpredictable, but as soon as you find a good combination of meds it will hopefully get better and easier to manage. Best of Luck!
Diagnosed: 2003, age 18 (had issues with it since I was 12)
Meds for crohns: Off all meds for 1 month until I heal. Still on 10mg Prednisone, and 20mg Oxycodone every 3 hours, and Oxycontin 5mg every 12 hours. Also on a bunch of other meds for crohn's and my other glorious diseases.
Other medical issues: Hereditary Spherocytosis (hemolytic anemia) iron deficient anemia, polyarthralgia, ovarian cysts, Migraines
Surgeries: Spleen and gallbladder out at age 6, Tonsils and Adenoids out at age 21. Ileocecal (small bowel) resection on December 13th. Appendectomy during small bowel resection

Thanks everyone for your replies! It is really nice to know there is a network of people who I can relate to!

Yesterday was a pretty good is completely the opposite! I am hoping to be on some meds soon! I see the GI the 5th of Feb. I did just get done taking a round of Flagyl, about a week ago, and that really did help while I was on it!

Yes, good one day.....CRAP the next !That's the nature of the beast. You just have to learn to 'go with the flow' if you know what I mean. The trick is to not to overdo it on good days as many of us tend to do...try to get as much accomplished on good days...but that can back fire...then you are fatigued and sick ...balance is the thing I guess....hard with an unpredictable disease such as ours.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

First off no question is ever a dumb question.  I consider myself to be in remission, but if I eat the wrong thing or get too stressed, I can get really sick fast.  So watch what you eat and try to keep your stress down and that should help to stop these mini flares as I call them.  But sometimes there is just no stopping them.  Good luck!

That's why I take full advantage of the good days! I get alot done, enjoy myself, laugh alot, and when the bad days come, I feel less guilty about not being able to function as supermom!

I am glad you wrote.. At times I feel weird as well and I don't want intrude.

I have even had great mornings only to come to the evenings to be praying for a bit of respite from the pain...that endurance marathon running paid off. Today is one of those days.

I have started to feel human again. Heck 2 days ago I walked 8 miles!!!!!!!!!!! It had been so long. Thank God for those days as it gives me strength for these. Oh the day was cool, the sky was blue, the cacti full and plump, the sun bright and warm on my skin.

Alas, I paid for that...have a fissure and I pressed my luck. But ,OH TO BE HUMAN AGAIN!!!! GLORY BE!

I go up and down --- usually a week at a time or so. I get very tired during the week and then nap and rest over the weekend. Once I overdo it then I feel crappy for a few days until I can recoup my strength.
