I have two questions.

i feel like my eye´s are swollen or like i have been awake for 48 hours but i haven't.
They are not red or anything i just feel as if i have been running a marathon with my eye´s hehe..

Is this how the eye problem feels like that comes sometimes with crohn´s ?

Is there anything you do to feel better some eye drops or something?


I have just started Remicade and i think i can feel some difference already :)

But i was wondering, do the joint pain also go with the Remicade ?

i can handle the pain in my stomach pretty well, it bothers me but i can live with it. But when i have the joint pain i can´t do anything :S

yeah i did have some joint pain with remicade .... i got the nurse that gave me the remicade to give me a shot of pred before the infusion and that helped a ton ... i didnt get the normal pred side effects form the shot but it really helped the joint pain and the side effects of the remicade....
