Well i went for my fourth remicade infusion yesterday in high spirits, it had taken me into complete remission and i had almost forgotten that i had the dreaded disease. the past two years have a been a test of my resolve, and i thought id found the thing for me with remicade.But i had a sever reaction yesterday - my face neck and arms started swelling, shortness of breath, heart racing - and i was told i can no longer have the treatment.
So my last resort seems to be humira, my GI is attempting to get me on humira as soon as possible. I've been on asacol, azathioprine, colazol, high doses of pred and remicade, all which have not been successful.
I'd love to hear everyone's experience with humira, and the results they have had with it. I'm grateful for the break the remicade gave me from the pain that i was in, but now i've acheived remission i dnt want it to be a brief thing.
Thanks in advance for your advice
