Welp, I'm waiting on a call back from my GI that I'm assuming will say "No more Remicade for you."
Went to my second dosage, which was a bit delayed (3 weeks after first instead of 2 weeks). When I got home I basically developed every known Remicade side affect:
Sick feeling all over body/Anemic feelings
Head ache and sinus pain
Flushed feeling in face
acid reflux which made the chest cavity sore
jaw pain, which I still have, and is annoying because I can't open my mouth.
I remember his number 2 drug choice was going to be Imuran. Really great that the two go to drugs to treat this disease medical science knows nothing about are a reject chemotherapy from the 1990s and an organ transplant drug that's even older.
