So I scheduled an appointment with a GI at the OSU Medical Center n Columbus, Ohio. Only problem is its not until jaunary 24th next year! BUt I guess I can Wait for a real opinion.

It's good you are going to a specialist..sorry you have to wait so long. It sounds like you are sick, which makes everything worse! I am from a small town and I often worry about how much my doctor actually knows. I mean, he can't possibly have that many Crohn's patients...it's just not that big of a town (Population is about 60,000) I hope you feel better soon!

Could you be dehydrated?  That won't explain the cough, but it could explain the lethary and lightheadedness...  Just a thought.
