Hello, I have not been on for awhile. I have been reading thru the post though. I have been hanging over on the Kidney Disease forum as I had a 6.5mm stone I was trying to pass on my own but had to have surgery on it.
I have been on Pentase for years and have never felt in remission. My pain has always been on the right now it is on the left as well. I know it is not my kidney. Today my fever is 101 again and I don't hardly have the engery to keep my hands on the keyboard.
I have been put on Topral XL 25mg at HS, my heart rate runs 120-170. I am told it from my anemia. I had a iron infusion that did nothing except give me joint/bone pain in my large bones.
My Dr wants to put me on "the big guns" he calls them. Remecade or Humiara. BUT I have dawson's fingers on my brain (a sign of MS). If I go on these big guns will they bring out the MS? 
And I also have cramps so bad in the AM during my many BM"S that I throw up. Not a pretty sight. My poor familky gets so upset.
Also I never really knew how much pain I was in until I took pain pills for my kidney stone and felt almost normal. I was so excited.
Sorry to ramble on but you all are so helpful on here. Thanks for your time.

Have you asked on the MS forum about the Remicade/Humira? I know alot of folks on this forum have had success with these meds. Good luck!
