So i am currently in a flare, taking Lialda for about a week, it might be working a little bit on some symptoms but I am developing others:
the big D with blood and mucus (sorry sorry sorry if TMI)
fissure & skintag
the Lialda seems to be helping with the frequency of when I have to go and I do have less gas it seems. However, I have developed:
2 erythema nodosum (the big red, hot-to-the-touch welt-looking bumps on the shins)
a crop of red pimple-looking bumps across my chest (last time I got sick they were on my lower back)
I still have a low grade fever and have no energy. So the big question:
Should I wait to see if the Lialda works better or
Should I start taking the Remicade?
Please, any experiences with Remicade would be so greatly appreciated. I am afraid to start taking it but don't want to be sick any more if I can do something to help it. I was on 6mp for the past year (while weaning off prednisone) and my neww dr realized 6mp does NOT work for me, it was the preed that was keeping the flares away.
Please help!! Any advice!!
