I had my 3rd loding dose of Remicade on January 16th. All last week I was exhausted. Like going to bed at 8pm exhausted. Last Thursday I started with blood on the tp again, and over the weekend I had loose stools again. This morning I'm nauseous and I've been in and out of the bathroom with more loose stools.
I had some stress at the end of last week- my mom had surgery and she had a bad reaction to the anesthesia- so at first I thought that was what caused it. But I was bleeding within 2-3 hours of hearing about Mom. That seems awfully fast, doesn't it? I could see the D starting up that quickly, but wouldn't bleeding need more time to develop? And by Friday afternoon she was fine, so that stress was removed. But I keep getting worse. For those who are on Remicade, are these kind of "break through" symptoms usual? Does this mean I already need another round? I'm not scheduled again until March 14th. I've got a call in to my GI, but I'd like to know what others who've been on this stuff think.
