(For Crohn's). Anyway, I'm 21, I was diagnosed with Crohn's when I was 17, before that they thought I had UC. I had my 4th scope in Sept. and I was healing except for proctitis, (joy). Anyway, I go through bouts of diarrhea and constipation, sharp stomach pain, nausea, extreme fatigue-i take frequent naps, feel exhausted, and have been known to sleep up to 14hours per day. Also, joint aches, sweats and chills, swelling and abdominal bloating too. Sometimes I am fine, but other times I get all these symptoms and I was just wondering if this was normal for a typical Crohn's patient. I have severe Crohn's and I am trying to work as hard as I can in college and my little 8hr per week tutoring job. But most every week I miss either a class or shift of work because of one of these symptoms. I have bloodwork ordered this week to find out why i'm so tired and other issues, but simply am i normal?
I'm on Remicade, 6MP, protonix, zyrtec, yaz, and occassionaly zofran for nausea, and darvocet for pain.
