Well yesterday I had such a bad time with my stomach.. followed by the whole night of just... weakness. I felt like passing out all of last night. I know that was probably from dehydration though.

Today everything was fine.. went to work, about an hour before my shift was over I started getting so shaky I couldn't control myself. I couldn't stop so I took a break just to sit down. I got home and I've gotten the shakes to go away, but now I'm just so drained of energy I feel so entirely weak. I don't know what the reason is. Can UC cause intense fatigue or weakness?

Sometimes I get the shakes, and get weak, but havn't been tired, maybe others here can explain why, I would like to know too.

So how are you feeling tonight ?

I have to add...what meds are you on? I know with pred I can't go too long without potassium before I start feeling shaky.

Are you losing much blood? Maybe you are anemic?

or it could be anxiety, considering the wedding is just a short time away.
But....are you eating enough?  Getting enough protein?
