I have Crohns disease and I eat pretty well, lately I've been losing blood the pain is like sharp needles in my stomach I have low energy and I'm anemic please advise!!! I saw a Colon doctor yesterday he said I could admit myself into the ER if I wanted to but I went home instead.



He didn't know why I was bleeding which is why he ordered a colonoscopy haven't had that since 11 years ago. Now my symptoms are these as of today I feel weak but I can still get up and do things I'm un normally tired and want to sleep a lot. I'm pretty sure my hemoglobin levels are below what they need to be and yesterday I caught a stomach virus but now I'm over it. I don't have insurance but that's not why I don't wanna go to the hospital I'm always thinking that I can heal myself If I can just stay relaxed cause stress causes it to flare up also I take b 12 vitamins and prenatal vitamins because they have the folic acid that I need. I have a 4 year old boy I stay home with and I feel bad that all I have energy to do is lay on the couch and watch tv with him. I also have muscle aches.

Go to the hospital. If you're hemoglobin is low enough you can die. Not worth the risk, your darling boy needs you. Good luck!

So glad to hear that Cecilia. I just think you can never be too careful when you're bleeding. Hopefully they can help you with your pain too

Well the thing is I don't have a dr specifically for crohns and it can be months before I'm able to be seen.

Are you also taking Iron? I am sensitive to it, but am constantly anemic, and need iron supplements. But man, if you are that bad off, not sure how you would fix it without medical intervention. Good luck, I hope you are feeling better soon.
