Hey MJ..I am going through the exact same thing at the moment. Two infusions ago, I had a reaction while I was there...hives, trouble breathing the whole bit but got a hefty shot of Benadryl and I was able to finish. For the last infusion less than two weeks ago, I took two Benadryl before hand and also had the anti-body test done right before. I was fine, no reactions until this past weekend. I literally could not move my body. My joints were in a lot of pain, had a fever, felt like I was running into a wall and developed a rash over most of my body. I got the results from the anti-body test yesterday and it came back positive so I will not be able to take Remicade anymore. They are starting the paperwork for Humira this week. Maybe have your doc run the test to see what it says?? I hear you about the 8 hour day, I am currently at work ( oops) and cannot believe it is only 12:45!!!! Good Luck
