I have been thinking about why my back is giving me hell and I may have the answer. I am almost 2 weeks overdue on having my Remicade infusion. Remicade always has helped me somewhat with my joint pain. So, I called and left a message for my gi's nurse to please get me on Wed schedule at the hospital. I should be hearing from her this afternoon.
 
I started back on Remicade infusions in March due to a nice lovely fistula that decided to tunnel out thru my stomach. I get my infusions every 4 weeks and this time, I just flat did not feel good. Its 60 miles round trip and I am at the hospital for about 5-6 hrs and it makes for a very long day, shame on me. If all goes right for Wed it will interesting to see what happens.
 
Hugs to all and a LPD

Hi Susie,

Sure hope the next infusion helps you feel better. At least you figured out what's doing it.

Good luck and keep us posted,
