I've been feeling nasty all day. Starting this morning, first my LRQ hurt. Since then my abdomen has been cramping intermittently all over the place, upper, lower left, everywhere. I feel gross, chilled at times, may have been running a very low-grade fever. Hard to say because only one reading was 99.1 and every other reading has been around 98.5. I guess I need to start monitoring my temp again.
I looked back at my diary and saw that I took cranberry pills last Wednesday/Thursday AM and I felt really bad last Thursday afternoon, and then I also took them yesterday/this morning. I'm not sure if these are the culprit or not. Does anyone else have trouble with cranberry pills or juice? I read somewhere they could be bad for IBS, which I was told I may also have.
Another possible culprit is ovulation as it is about 10 days since the end of my last period. Is this a problem for IBS/IBD? I've been having pelvic pain around ovulation time since getting off the pill, but this is worse.
The stress level is also climbing. Big presentation on Thursday. Psychosomatic?
I just really don't want this to be a recurrence of the Crohn's already...please no.
