Hi Alexandra, Sorry that you have to deal with this stinker of a disease[ no pun intended]. I was diagnosed in jan of 00 and it has been the roller coaster ride of my life. I have been through almost every med known to crohn's and remicade was the only thing that provided me with mild relief. All crohnies are different though so what may work for some may be terrible for others. Remicade has many side affects so please beware.. I am also new here but have lived with cd for almost ten years. I wish you lots of luck and hope you remission very soon.
