    I'm getting exactly the same thing at the moment especially at night. I asked my IBD nurse the other day, she said it's a side effect of my steroids, are you on prednisolone at the moment?

    Hi Sian, I also had night sweats whilst flaring,no steroids. Tiredness also part of this disease when in a flare. (I too thought it might be an age thing!) I personally found it took meds about a month to make me feel better,you will improve as time goes on. Take care and be kind to yourself x
