    Hi, I am always exhausted, I thought it was a side effect from medication, but apparently it is a product of having Crohn's....I am not tired as in ready for sleep but just a simple walk to the shop feels like I have run a marathon. I honestly did not understand all the complications of Crohn's and I am still learning...I was diagnosed in November last year and still not pain free...waiting for a phone call on Wednesday to see if I need surgery or influximab. I must admit I used to be up at 6.30am everyday but now find it's 9.30 because I am so exhausted. Sorry not to give you a magical answer and hope you feel better soon.xxx
