Right now it seems like a head cold but I am afraid it might move into my chest.
Any advice?
Thanks!

Good question. It seems as though I've had a perpetual cold since October. Nonetheless, I've gone ahead with my infusions. I've mentioned the cold to my doc and he's done blood work to make sure that it was OK to proceed, and proceed we did. I'd let your doc know how you're feeling, and get his/her advice. Hope you're feeling better soon though!

I would get one at the end of a cold but not at the beginning...just my 2 cents...

My GI has always told me that as long as I don't have dark yellow or green mucus and no fever of 101 or higher, then I can go ahead and get the remicade. HTH.
