I stopped Remicade infusions almost a year ago because the migraines were becoming too much to bear. However, besides some (relatively) mild symptoms, my Crohn's and Arthritis were under control. I've been using Humira since about May 2008 and haven't stopped flaring since November. I feel like my entire body is eaten up with inflammation. I can't concentrate and feel disconnected often. Either the inflammation makes every inch of my body sore, or it has the fibromyalgia flaring as well. I guess I have so many conditions, I can't tell what's what anymore. The only thing I can think of is that the Humira doesn't work for me. A steroid pack (Dexpak) didn't work.
For those of you who know a bit about the biologics, is it possible for me to return to Remicade after being off if it for this time? If not, what is the next drug to try after Remicade and Humira?
thanks for any advice you can offer
