Well I went to my GI appt finally. I find that for the past few months or longer that every 6 weeks or so I start to run a long grade temp of 99 to 101. The body aches are joint pain are very very painful. I don't normally have any other symptoms from it. I also told him of the constipation and then diarrhea I get. Well he ordered a bunch of blood test to look for rheumatoid arthritis (which I don't believe I have), CRP and CBC. I did see a rheumatologist a while ago and he prescribed me prednisone very low dose and it did help. I hate the thoughj of going on that path. If all my tests come back normal then he may want to do a sigmoidoscopy middle of January. All in all I have certainly felt worse. I just miss the energy I once had and the flexibility of my body. Thanks for being there. Happy Holidays!
