I seem to be developing new Crohn's symptoms (lucky me, just when I think I've got it figured out). On the 4th of July I experienced overwhelming pain in the ileum area accompanied with nausea (no vomiting) and a fever of 102. The sudden onset had me pretty scared. But, I popped a few steroids and in a few days felt better.
We're doing a scope in a few weeks to see if the doc can see the ileum or what's going on there. If he can't, we'll do an upper or a CT.
Anyway, in the past week I have been super nauseous. This is not accompanied by any new pain and things are "moving along" normally.
What has been your experiences with the cause of nausea? Also, Pepto Bismo doesn't seem to be helping. Does anyone else have suggestions?
