hi. yesterday morning I woke up and fell on the ground. It happened so fast I did not know what happened. I have a nice goose egg on my elbow but other than that I am fine. This morning when I woke up I sat up to make sure I was fully awake and I realized how dizzy I was. hmm.. this is new. I had my sec ond Remicade infusion last thursday. No side effects. I take prednisone 20mg, and Imuran. Any idea is dizziness a side effect of remicade?

I occasionally get a ringing in my ear, not a regular ringing, more like a buzzing/ringing.  It usually happens when I'm sitting down (luckily) and does throw off (very slightly) my equilibrium.    Each episode lasts from 10 seconds to 10 minutes - usually on the shorter end.   Also, for the most part it is very occasional - but sometimes I will get it off and on for a couple of hours.
33 years old. Diagnosed in 2002ish.

Lower Bowel area only, except for the short stint (about 2 weeks) that I had mouth sores.  Also have external/anal fistula and anal/vaginal fistula.
