Hi, I need some help from anyone who has been on Remicade. I have had my 4th infusion with no problems until the past few days. I have been experiencing a dull pain on the lower right side of my body and it travels down to my stomach. It comes and goes and originally I just thought it was gas pains. The Remicade seems to be helping as the trips to potty are fewer than they have been and there is no blood or anything out of the normal other than this sharp pain that comes and goes. Ironically, it feels better when I lie on my stomach but there really is no extraordinary gas. My meds are the same and I have not changed my diet; actually nothing has changed. I am wondering if there is anyone out there who has experienced something similar to what I am describing? My meds include the Remicade, Lialda, Pamine, Opium, 24 drops over the day, Flora Q and I take so many others for migraines, throyid, and Fibromyalgia, but nothing has changed. Thanks to everyone.

Thanks for input. I'm seeing the GI tomorrow. I have been ok since and I sure hope you are wrong. I have watched my husband go through a moving kidney stone and i want no part of that! Thank yo again.

Remicade gave me gas pains occassionally after an infusion, but not for any prolonged period of time (usually just really bad constantly for a few days and then gone).

Could it be an "adhesion"? I haven't had one myself, but might be something worth googling?

Hope you piece together the mystery soon.
