I've started a second dose of pred. and it seems to be helping my Crohn's symptoms -cramping, d, high temperature every evening and general feeling like rubbish.
What  I am still battling with is a total lack of energy - If I have to walk anywhere I have to have a sit down every 5-10 minutes as haven't got the energy to stand any longer.  I'm wondering if this might be anaemia?  Iron tablets have helped before in previous flare ups but this time are causing constipation which gives me agonising back pain.  No fun.
I'm seeing Consultant tomorrow so will ask him but wondering if anybody has any good ideas to give me some energy?
Also -what does everybody do to relieve lower back pain (not sure if caused by Pred or CD or both?!)
Thanks in advance,
Happy Xmas from London
