Hi everyone:

I was going to report that I was in remission after 5 yrs of grief until last night.

Background: Diagnosed Crohns & Colitis several yrs ago, multiple allergic reactions....most recent to my Remicade gained remission
then reared its ugly head. I was down for a 1 1/2 mos with the worst symptoms. Now 4 wks past my date w/Remicade I started feeling
good until last night.

Question: Are the following symptoms of late a flare up in your opinion? I have back discomfort, stomach ache in the upper GI, nausea, not hungry, Blood and blood clots in stool...
no fever. It seems to be identical symptoms I had before I took Remicaide.

I called my Dr and was told its probably your experience could this be hemmroids? I didn't know hemmroids made
your stomach hurt & cause blood clots etc? Note also, with my symptoms from Remicaide I experienced a dry cough, headaches, dizziness
fever, rash, 25 lb weight drop, extreme fatigue and many other horrific side effects (don't worry everybody on remicade remember
I am allergic to everything it is a good drug for most people) and the worst of it started the night of my colonoscopy.

Previous advice was to get the test to make sure I haven't developed anitbodies to Remicade or developed Rem Induced Lupus but, they
have not set up those appointments either. I am a little scared, worried & in need of support..what would you do? Change Dr's?
Sincerely - A person that will make it a good day anyways!
