Hi, I'm after others experience of fever like symptoms that I understand can come with Crohns. I've been diagnosed with mild Crohns just recently following 5 years of symptoms and the usual IBS diagnosis.
Recently I've been on Budisonide which changed my life! In my doctors bid to avoid staying on steroids long term I've been off them for around 6 weeks and on pentasa for around 2 weeks. I've heard these can take up to 6 weeks to do their thing.
As I've declined since coming off steroids I've had the usual fatigue, pain and nausea but also the feeling of general illness like a fever but not a fever.
It's hard to describe as its like nothing else...I have no temperature but my skin crawls feeling similar to a temperature, I feel light and sketchy headed and I feel cold. I spend most of my day dreaming about going home to bed following a hot shower! I also have a headache that ripples in the from of my head and has been with me constantly for around 3 or 4 weeks, more or less the same as the rest of the new symptoms.
What have others experienced around the so called Crohns fever like symptoms?
