14 Things that People with Crohn's, Colitis, and IBD Hate Hearing

Why are you so tired?

Why are you so tired?

Many of the primary symptoms associated with UC and Crohn’s disease may lead to chronic, and often debilitating fatigue. The body has to work extra hard just to fight off the immunal attacks that it goes through during serious inflammation flare ups and when a lot of blood or water is lost during bowel movements or vomiting.

Another primary cause for the reason your friend or family member is so tired all of the time is that they probably aren’t getting much sleep or much good quality sleep at night. Be patient with them and try to understand if they need extra naps, can’t stay up late with you, or don’t always feel energized enough to help with chores.
