I have a long a complicated history of abdominal pain and diarrhoea for many years. To try and summarise I was diagnosed with crohn's in the terminal ileum a year ago and have recurring iron deficiency anaemia which I have iron infusions in hospital as I can't take any oral iron. I also have functional gut disorder which I've had for many years.
I have been feeling generally unwell since 2014 when all my symptoms became unmanageable I was working part time and struggling badly with pain diarrhoea and fatigue.
I have also got low folate levels but am unable to take oral folic acid. I was having b12 injections but my levels have come back up to normal after 12 months of the steroid budesonide which I've been taken off in early march.
I am 49, I do have high blood pressure but am on medication for that.
I just keep waiting to feel better and I don't seem to be able to get back to how I was I have persistent fatigue should I feel better than this as apparently my crohn's is mild?
Thanks for any replys
