gachrons-I started Remicade 2 years ago.. thought it was a saving grace as it gave me back my quality of life. My GI thinks it can be a lot of things, have a history of pancreatitis so has to check that out, he said it could be a variety of things including diverticulitus.. he wanted to run tests to see how my liver was and everything else. I talk to him Monday, if I can't take the symptoms or they get worse I am to go to the er. thanks for the support
lizard99- thanks, it is hard but I need to stay focused on positive thoughts to get through this. I hope this is a speedy recovery too!!
sassy- i had a steroid dependancy and am terrified of being put back on them. I will take anything I have to in order to get better, this pain is no joke!! I'm sorry you're feeling it too! Yea I feel it all the way in my back! I am gonna get a heating pad tomorrow and try that, heat helped in my last flare I totally forgot about that!
thanks for letting me not feel so alone.
