Feel run down?

I was wondering if this is to do with IBD or just my body being weird as usual

If I go to bed feeling nauseas and the usual pain etc, and I either sleep or try to sleep, during the night I get a cold and feel run down, sore throat, headache etc and feel worse. Then later on in the day if i'm feeling better the run down-ness goes away. So it's only there when i'm most poorly.

Is that just me? Anyone else? Related to IBD?

I have no reason for the cold, sore throat, headaches - I know we all get them from time to time but it's usually when i'm feeling worse than usual.

Not sure on this one. Is it sinus pressure perhaps? Sounds like me when I'm getting a cold coming on. I definitely find that to be worse at night, especially when I'm awake in bed and not distracted by other things.

When I get overtired I feel like I have flu. Aches, pains, fuzzy head feeling, feel like I have a fever (though the thermometer doesn't think so). And then after I have caught up with some sleep, the feeling goes away. So I'm guessing it is related somehow. Maybe i get a touch of a virus and I get tired while I battle it off? Or maybe something to do with being tired tricks my body into thinking I have a virus? Who knows!

Being tired defo triggers these symptoms with me too, immune system runs amok!
After a restful 9 or more hours sleep these symptoms pass.
Last night I felt like I was getting flu, went to bed early, feel fine now, quickest flu recovery ever!

I feel like that quite a lot, but after at least 8 or more hours of sleep I usually feel better.

I'm sorry I'm just now seeing this thread. It's nice to find out there are others out there who feel like I do!! If I get the least bit tired, I feel like I have the flu, sometimes run a low grade fever and oftentimes get sick at my stomach. I've been telling my family for years that I can't allow myself to get too tired. I can pretty much tell when I'm reaching the point of no return, so I make myself relax and if that means doing absolutely nothing, that's exactly what I do.

I experience the same thing. No fever recorded, but when I am over tired I feel nauseous and fuzzy headed. Rest generally helps. During this flare up I feel this way from about 3:30pm on. I too thought it was just me...
