How do you handle the high temps?

I'm in full flair and treating the symptoms until insurance decides I'm worthy of new med.
every night I could set my watch by my nice 102+ temps. I am on antibiotics and I take Tylenol every night before bed, and again as soon as I'm up. Anyone got any other suggestions? Just venting and feeling low
Whoops!

Try to stay on a bland diet. Hope you feel better soon.

I didn't realise this was a Crohns thing, I was thinking it was my medication causing unpleasant hot flush type sensations when I wake up and sometimes during the night. I've no idea how to deal with them, I'm afraid - but luckily my red hot temperatures don't seem to last too long, only a few minutes at a time.

Have you called your doctor?

No, I never thought to mention it when I was at the IBD clinic the other day, but on the basis of the symptoms I did tell the nurse about (diarrhoea etc) she's ordered blood tests and faecal calprotectin tests. So when I pluck up the courage to get the blood test done I'll find out more. I gather from this thread that high temperatures can indicate a worrying amount of inflammation?
