welllll went to the ER and the travelling joint pain they told me i wasn't crazy lol they think it is from the remicade.  Had a bunch of x-rays noobstruction (well there is a shocker only been going constantly for days didn't say it stopped lol) no emergency stuff but TI area is all inflammed (where my crohn's and narrowing is) said my D is not stool just from the inflammation and need pred to bring it down or its not going to stop.  my BW showed inflam too but hemaglobin ok so sent me home and told me to call GI first thing this am as i need  scope.  Of course my Gi isn't in the office today he is at the hospital scoping so waiting for his return call to see what he wants me to do.  Hoping no scope cause really don't want to go through a prep right now!  Pain is still there (meds knocked me out so at least got sleep last night lol).  bowels seems to be at rest for the moment too (knock on wood) scared to eat dont want to wake them up lol. 
 
Thankyou for all the advice hoping things are getting better just been one flare after another with me lately and its hard sometimes cause no one else really understands what im going through

Did they do an ANA test?

Glad to hear you did go, and find out it's not an obstruction or something else emergent. I know it's frustrating to go and be sent home just to follow up with your GI, but at least you got relief and were able to get some rest. Hopefully your GI will call you back and figure something out to get you feeling better.
