Hello everyone,
I have been getting recurrent fevers for several months - the worst was in January for 5 days, then I have had two since then that have only lasted about 24 hours. The only other symptoms I get with the fevers are fatigue and aching joints. I went to my doctor and she said she didn't think it was my crohn's because I wasn't getting any other severe crohns symptoms at the same time. I have had diarrhea once a day every day for the last week (along with a bit of nausea). My bloodwork is wonky - my hemoglobin is good for once, but my blood cells are pale and mishapen and my lymphocites are low. I am wondering - does anyone else get fevers, and if so, what seems to be the pattern of them? (How long do they last, what does it usually mean and do you get other symptoms with them)?

(I am feeling frustrated because I wonder if it is crohn's related but my doc is also checking for lymphoma, and also just did an ultrasound which found a very large fibroid in my uterus).

I had a fever for over a year before I began getting symptoms of Crohn's and was officially diagnosed.
