For the last three weeks, my crohns has been really flaring. I went to see gastro last Thurs. and CRP was elevated with increased WBC. I have been having severe D, fatigue, and pain. MD has decided to increase Humira as an reintroduction dose as 80mg (2 shots) day 1, 80mg day 2 and then 80mg on day 15. I have been on the Humira for about
3 years but she feels this will sensitize my body back to the drug. Have any of you had this reintroduction dosing?
Also, I had to go the hospital this past weekend after my office visit because the pain just got worse and I was dehydrated. At this visit, the MD's said my CRP was actually decreased from the prior 3 day OV. Futhermore, the xray showed no obstruction and very little inflammation. I just don't understand. This has happened once before my resection when they went in and did surgery without xrays showing obstruction and found an obstruction that didn't appear on xray. It seems like only small bowel follow throughs show up problems for me as well. Any suggestions.
