I have now been in a bad flare since oct/nov I have been off pred for 7 weeks now an I can feel myself getting worse by the day :S
I am not nearly as bad as I was but it's getting there :S How long do you wait and see how things turn out?

I am now on Remicade 5mg/kg but my doc was thinking of putting me on 10mg/kg i only had 3 infusions so far.

Or am I maybe overreacting do you sometimes feel worse when you are healing ?

When I contact my GI depends on how sick I am. If I'm really sick, I wait a few days just to make sure it isn't food poisoning or a stomach bug, then call. If it seems like my typical Crohn's symptoms are acting up, I call my GI usually after a few weeks.
