Well it appears everything that has happened this wkendd has lead to a flare.
First the bone chilling cold that I got on thursday night which then lead to fever and getting sick on friday. Saturday just bad cramps all day an unable to eat. This all lead up to the worst stomach cramp in my life, leaving me doubled over on the floor crying. So off to the er yesterday night. I was dehydrated so they gave me fluid, took multiple drug test and a antispasm medication for the cramps. Also to a CT and deffinatley saw sweling in my lower small intestine. This morning I woke up with blood in my stole. So I am flaring. mad

Hopefully your GI will get you in. With fever and chills, you probably need to start an antibiotic, but that's just my opinion. I hope you get over this ASAP.
