Today my whole body aches - just every single muscle feels worn out and I'm so tired! I had a pretty normal BM this morning (other than some of the enema from last night mixed in). Could this be the Imuran or Prednisone? My muscles were pretty achy last night as well, and I didn't go to the gym last night as usual. I've been having just achy pains in my left and right abdomen and a usual sharp pain on and off in the lower groin which I thought was an injury. I"m getting blood tests tomorrow to check my gallbladder, pancreas, etc just to make sure nothing weird is going on. I had an MRI Enterography a few weeks ago and all came out fine in my colon other than the usual inflamation in the lower 1/2.
I used to always feel like once these muscle aches and tiredness came on it meant for sure I was going into a flare. But can the medicine just cause this too? I"m hoping so!
