nursetiff, I was on Remicade and had to stop it due to allergic reactions. My stomach pain and joint pain (I also have arthritis due to Crohn's) got worse, but I didn't come out of remission as far as the Crohn's was concerned. But, I was only off of Remicade for about two months before finding and starting in a clinical trial for Cimzia. Even if I had not found the clinical trial, I would have tried Humira. Even with the Cimzia, pain and arthritis medication, I still have arthritis pain (and have now stopped the arthritis drug due to 3 ulcers found on my endoscopy last week). I don't think I could do it without one of the biologic drugs. Good luck! I hope you get off of Remicade and don't have increased problems.
...rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverence; perseverence, character; and character, hope. Romans 5:3-4
