So sorry for anyone else having to go through EN. One of the difficulties is you are in pain and sickness and you dont look sick. The fever is low grade. Tell others you have an auto-immune disease since most people these days know what that is. Don’t waste your breath and energy explaining it because seriously most people dont get it. If you tell them its a type of skin disease, some people think they can catch it. Take care of yourself! Make sure you rest with legs elevated. The beginning of the disease is the worst with weakening, diarrhea, low grade fever, nausea, before the onset of the lesions. No, you don’t have a fever over but believe your body is sending all of its energy to attack itself and make you better, auto-immune disease. The major way you get over this disease is by resting. Let your family know you need their help. Having it for the first month is purely exhausting and I am athletic.
