Hi Randy,

Hi, I am teddybearweiser, I am a male.
I was diagnosed with crohns disease when i was admitted to the hospital

in 1992, in Jan of 1993 I was back in the hospital for surgery for my crohns. I had part of my right colon resectioned with ilecolonstomy.

My GI doctor has me on Asacol, Dicyclomine,Imuran,Celebrex and Remicade. B-12 injection once a month.
Also diagnosed with Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis

Not so much fun being a "challenge" for the doctors, it it, Randy? Bummer that those darn fevers still like to sneak up on you from time to time. Murphy must really be infatuated or in love w/you!! He must be your personal "stalker", the dirty bird. And I heard it was just a rumor, there is NO MRS Murphy, nor MS Murphy, only mr Murphy. Sorry 'bout that, sport.

Geeeeezzzz Rando, wish you could find out whats happening in there. The little guys that stoke the furnace must have a busted thermostat. Can you camp out at the dotors until they find the culprit..Just tell your doc you will work as a hot plate or a coffee warmer...

feeling fine now... all gone.. i sometimes wonder if these fevers are actually good for me? i mean a fever is a natural defence against infection etc... so if its something only my body can detect and not the medical people, then maybe its mt bodies way of protecting me? right? could be my lifesaver while im trying to stop them.. makes me wonder..

Randy do you normally run at low temp.? Just wandering if they ever tested you for low thyroid? I know it can cause sweats and a whole load of problems. I read about some last night and I got about 14 of the symnptoms. Getting mine checked. lol gail
