I am in the middle of my cycle of my second dose. My verdict so far?
I haven't been on Remicade or Humira, but I was Imuran (only stopped that due to wicked headaches it gave me).
I feel like my flare is still very active; the only thing that is different is there isn't any stomach pain anymore. But, I am still going to the bathroom just as often, sense of urgency is still very present, my Crohn's arthritis (not officially diagnosed, but I just KNOW I have it) is still a problem, fatigue, nausea...all of it, still a factor. Plus, on top of all of it, my face, neck, upper back, upper chest, and shoulders itche like I have been eaten alive by mosquitoes.
For some reason, it was cheaper for me to have it done at the GI office rather than at home? So, I have an injection nurse do mine.
I didn't know, thought, that it was from a human protein? Where is the information on that?
