Hi! We were also told about
3 weeks ago that my son had crohn's. He is on Prednisone down to 30mg now. But he says it makes him so tired and weak feeling.That has been his major complaint. It makes him feel so tired but at the sametime he cant sleep. His knees and shoulders ache all the time.
We went to the dr today. He said we needed to treat Ko like a regular 12 year old. I somewhat agree with that. But he said he should not be allowed to sleep or really have to rest during the day at all (he is homeschooled). He said if he doesnt sleep and rest during the day he will sleep at night. I call BS a bit on that one.
SO we feel your pain and hope you start feeling better soon
