My one-year anniversary of diagnosis is coming up

Last year I wasn't feeling well when I would run sprints or run in general. I played it off as if I just wasn't in shape. I didn't truly expect something was wrong until I threw up during a basketball game. After several blood tests, visits to 3 different types of doctors, and a colonoscopy they finally diagnosed me with Crohn's disease. Since then my doctor has put me on Remicade, and I have made multiple diet changes excluding gluten, dairy, soy, and other things from consumption. I am starting to feel better and am able to play basketball like before. I am still experiencing bad days, as expected, and I feel tired most of the time. This does not stop me from going to every basketball practice and living my life. I am doing my best to kick Crohn's butt.

Welcome. Have you had your blood checked to see if you are anemic.
