I was wondering what some of you might make of this as I am having some really bad pain.
about a year ago I found out my CD had spread all over my colon, especially in the rectum. No medicines helped and I finally went on Remicade which seemed to help after the first two doses. I had no pain in my rear, no bleeding, normal stools and going 2-4 times a day. I got my 3rd infusion about 2 weeks ago and I don't feel like it took this time. I am starting to have pain in my *ss again. When ever I go to the bathroom the past couple of days it is like I have a fire down there. It is hard to wipe completely as it really really really hurts. There is also a little bit of red blood on the toilet paper..none in the water. I have never had any fistulas, strictures, tabs, etc associated with CD. I don't know if it is just the CD acting up again or something new. I have an appointment with my doc come mid January but I am not sure if I can handle the pain until then. I don't feel like it is ER worthy either.
Has anyone experienced anything like this and can give me insight. I am hoping it isn't a flare of the CD cause that might mean that after I have gotten a full dose of Remi..that it isn't working already :(
