severe cramping (before, during & right after bm)
lying down seems to increase the cramping and bm's
sleep loss (due to getting up every 2 hours for bm)
lower back pain (kidneys)
diarreah (sometimes forest green colored - why is that? but better than all blood!!)
small fever (have not taken my temp but do get hot - mabye just the pred?)
forgetfulness (from being too tired and in pain and dealing w/health rather than other things, which is waaay more important but still, I keep on forgetting things and they just don't seem important (they probably are not anyway, so I am not stressing about
those..maybe that is good in itself!)
couple of good things....
days seem to be better for me (silver lining, could be constant 24 hrs, right?)
heating pad helping w/cramping when I lie still and do not move (awesome!)
