I wake up and I go to bed all bloated and hurting I've had 3 doses of the cimzia how many more till I see some results????? I don't see any relief from it. I'm beginning to think I have a parshal blockage or more. I'm so sick of being so bloated and in pain. I still go and most of the time its ether the runs or very soft. But after I eat it hurts so bad. Any help any one????? cry

I'm right there with ya, Dawn. I am soooo frustrated that it's hard to "stay positive". I get my 3rd dose this week. I too am having just STUPID bad gas pains, and less formed stools... but this is it... this stuff MUST work!

I'll be thinkni' about ya... I hope it kicks in soon for you.

Having failed Remicade and Humira I decided to try Cimzia anyway. Why not? It was the only approved me for Crohn's that I had not tried and failed or not tolerated.

a week after my second dose I started to notice a difference in my symptoms. I am a long way from remission, but I do feel I noticed a difference. (Note I am still on steroids, but hope to attempt to wean soon) My final loading dose (3rd dose) is today. The real test for me will be whether I can hold the improvements for the entire 4 weeks...

So, if you are past your final loading dose and no improvement it's probably not a great sign. but, if you can hang in there and give it a few more doses, maybe it will just take longer to work in your system. Hang in there!
