I started Cimzia back in September.  Everything going good with it. 
Well I was due for my injection the Wed. right before Christmas. 
I had to call doc that morning because I found some type of sore
on my bum the night before and wasn't sure what it was.  We were
both thinking it was a fistula (sp?). I have never had one before so
had no idea.  Well he put me on Cipro for two weeks and I went in to
see him the following Monday so he could look at it.  It was much
better and not a fistula but not sure what it was.  Anyway, I was
about a week late taking my injection. Doc cleared me to do it. When I did it last week
finally I did both shots in my stomach.  Normally I do one in leg and
one in stomach.  Well I woke about 2am throwing up.  
Do you think it had anything to do with doing both in the belly area??
It was just odd that it happened. I have never gotten sick from it
otherwise.

How do you feel now? Did you have any other symptoms. It could be food poisoning...

When I was on the clinical trial for Cimzia, some of their patients always got both shots in the abdomen, and we got the drug every 2 weeks instead of every 4.  They didn't get sick from having the shots there, but I've never tried it there because I don't have any stomach fat.  You wouldn't think they'd approve it for injection in the stomach if that would cause you to get sick, but we are all different, so you never know.

I felt fine once I visited Mr. Toilet bowl. No other symptoms. Just was woken up
about 4 hours after. Now I'm afraid to do the next one in stomach. It just hurts
so bad in my upper leg area.

I've been getting Cimzia shots in my abdomen for months and have never had any adverse reactions.
