Hello Group! New Member here!
Dx'd with Crohns 6 years ago.
Only treatment right now is Remicade, every 12 weeks. last treatment 04/03/2009.
I have incredible joint and muscle pain the closer i get to my 12 week infusion, sometimes at 8 weeks after an infusion, as soon as i get the Remicade, my lupus like joint pain goes away immediately. though after this time some minor pains came back only 1 week after infusion. Talking to my GI this week, not going to do remicade anymore, i am in Agony! Crohns was bad enough, but this is worse... have not had Crohn's flare since May 2007.
You think that Remicade would be out of my system by now since i took last dose 04/03/2009, but the pain is very bad. Not sure what my next step is....
