Yup, fatigue is part of the package. When I try to explain it to people, I compare it to when you're just starting to get a cold. You feel tired and want to sleep all the time because your immune system is trying to fight off the cold germs. Well, in Crohn's, your immune system is working hard to fight off your guts! Add to that the nutritional deficiencies, the anemia, waking up all night to go to the bathroom, being in pain.... this is why we are tired.
