I have really odd symptoms, its symptoms that I get when I"m flaring, but none of the GI part of it....its odd. I have been tapered off the prednisone for a few weeks now, and initially I attributed it to that, but I haven't bounced back yet. I have joint aches, severe fatigue, and canker sores in my mouth, but no diarrhea, blood , mucous, or urgency, or pain. Its odd...i talked to my doctor on thursday, and he ordered some bloodwork, a CBC, thyroid and vit b12 level. My CBC was a bit low on RBC's but not any worse than in the past, and my HGB and HCT were ok, the rest was all ok...so I don't understand...its weird..I'm just so tired of being so tired and achy!!
