golitho - I guess no reaction is better than a bad reaction - but the swelling, pain and headache sound horrible - is it supposed to work faster because it is infused? Im not as updated on Remicade as I should be - having to learn about the Humira was bad enough See, that having to be sitting for hours put me right off Remicade - that would kill my AS as I need to keep moving with it.
You could be right about the flushes being the heat - Im sick to death of summer already - and its only the beginning
Re: the Humira - it is still working great for the Crohn's and this week I have had less neck pain - I even had a day where I didnt take panadol
Hopefully the next infusion for you will kick the Remi along to do something good for you (and were'nt you lucky to get in again before Xmas!)
Hope you and Peggy both enjoy your parties.
Have a great weekend.
