This is my first post. Woohoo! I have Crohns disease & since my last surgery 2 yrs ago I've been going downhill. It was a long recovery of 6 wks and then I got bronchitis. Since then I have daily aches, exhaustion, recently started migraines with aura, stiff neck, sore neck, and hip pain. My constant ache sometimes wakes me up. It's hard for me to get to sleep. Once I'm asleep I could sleep for 14, 15 hrs if given the chance. It hurts to not move, too. It's just always there. Mostly in my upper arms, shoulders, neck. My internist did blood work a few wks ago. I'm low on iron so I'm taking pills for it. I also have hair loss. That could be from the anemia/low iron. I have a bald spot about 2" x 2" but my hair covers it. I literally wince if approached for a hug from my 6yr old and husband. My internist also wants me to see an ENT because there's either a lymph node or salivary gland that's enlarged under my jaw on the right. I have not been formally diagnosed. Thoughts? Do you think it could be fibro?
