Tired and dizzy

Hi, I've just been diagnosed with crohns just over a week ago and started medication straight away. I am not having as many problems with my stomach but I feel tired a lot, with headaches, tired eyes and feeling slightly dizzy. Anyone else experience anything similar and any advice on what I should do?
Thanks

Welcome. Have you had any blood work? You could be anemic.

I had a blood test before I was diagnosed which showed anomalies but have not had one since starting the medication. I'll have to ask the consultant when I see him in a couple of weeks time. Thanks

It may be the medication causing you to have these symptoms
Perhaps you should let the docs know about it..why not give them a call
Don't suffer in silence
Feel better soon

I would make sure you are getting enough fluids well. Dehydration can make me feel dizzy, lethargic and light headed.
