Ahh I bet thats more frustrating!!
My joints are all fine too at the moment which is pretty amazing considering the winter we're having here - usually my joints stiffen and swell in cold conditions but then again I have really been looking after myself.
Had a call from the IBD nurse, she basically said it sounded like I need help regardless and then mentioned that usually with acute flare ups of Crohn's, like what I had over Christmas, they treat it with one infliximab and then another 2 weeks later to really knock it out....all I'm thinking is why on earth did they not mention that or do that before! I'm shocked that she made out like that was standard procedure and its the first I'm hearing of it, its now been over 4 weeks since the one infusion I had then. I know I'm a slightly different case as I'm an episodic infliximab user but still I'm a little peeved it wasn't put forward to me especially if it is what they usually do for patients. I'll be so upset if it turns out my body's needlessly getting damaged over something so simple as not being given an extra infusion like others in my position were. She's calling back once she's spoken to my GI after this afternoons clinic, here's hoping we can figure out a way to knock this on the head before this turns into anything nasty.
