I completely understand your reluctance to call the doctor on the weekend and your desire to avoid sounding like a whiner. I tend to avoid bringing up any medical issues that are not related to my crohn's disease so that I don't give the doctor the impression that I worry about everything. On the other hand, I think it is very important to make sure that small problem still become big problems. Does your community have a telephone line that you can call for medical advice? I know a lot of communitites here in Canada have these lines staffed by registered nurses who will advise you whether or not you should go to the emergency room. Also, some medical plans provided by employers have numbers you can call for medical advice as. You may want to call them to see if your pain is anything that needs immediate attention.
I've never been on remicade so I don't know what the side effects are.
No, but I put on 70 lbs from the prednisone, so I probably sneezed or something. It went away today for a while and then came back. I think something is brewing, but it better go away fast because I am drowning in medical bills. I am tired of waiting to get better. I have been on remi since April and I am starting to get really sick again fast. I am just resting everyday and hoping my obstruction I had last January isn't brewing again.
