Well, this is my fourth week after Remicade.  I thought I was going to feel like a new person.  Admittedly, after eight or nine days, I did notice a change, but oddly after the second one I'm back to my old pain.
I feel like such a fraud sometimes b/c after having the infusions I've been able to talk with other people with the disease.  Well, they have visible signs of the disease.  I have none (with the exception of a slight nodule on my finger).  But I'm 33 and was recently diagnosed.
I just want to feel better.  When can I expect this to kick in?

Hey there bamabelle.. it takes some people a few months to see results.. How many infusions have you had? How often are you having them? Hang in there..
