Sounds like he may be flaring, my son doesn't always get pain with flares and rarely blood. Most of the time he starts with night time fevers, mouth ulcers, softer bms, severe fatigue and joint pain. Once we had fatigue and joint pain and not until the fecal calprotectin came back really high did the other symptoms start. Hope they get every thing straightened out soon.

Unfortunately, I think it might be the start of a flare. Is he on any maintenance meds?
