Wierd stuff. I would swear I was pregnant and that the baby was kicking. I started Cimzia in late May. I'm not impressed as of yet. I keep hoping that things will change after each shot but nothing yet. The most relief I get is approximately 3-4 four days. Now the shots are spaced monthly!!! I have to wait it out. I do have much more abdominal pain, what feels like constipation and then without warning other than the colon twiching, massive diarrhea. My joints ache all the time and I am basically housebound. Has anyone had the colon spasm like this. I know that I could feel little spasms before but this looks and feels like there's an alien living in my abdomen. Could this be the beginnings of a stricture? I am very distended on that side and have enough gas to light a third world country. Any help would be appreciated.
