Here's the deal..
since my last remicade in july, i've experienced a range of neurological symptoms that were first blamed on the parvo virus. but when i recently saw my gi, he thought a neurological exam should be conducted before the next infusion.
i got an mri on wednesday, was negative for MS so i went ahead and scheduled my infusion for today.
low and behold...i had a reaction during the treatment. i ran a high fever and had a few patches of hives. the neurological symptoms also started to kick in.
i don't want to go near remicade again, im afraid of furthering the neurological damage. has anyone else had these sort of problems with remicade before? i'm not refering to the typical reaction problems such as rashes or fevers, but more so weakness and pain the legs, tingling in fingers and feet, one side of body stronger than the other, etc.
They also noticed that im b-12 deficient, which can cause a lot of those symptoms, but if i had a reaction to remicade today i'm thinking it's safe to say that it most certainly has a role in what im experiencing.
