i think i'm starting to go into a flare. i've had the dreaded d for the last 3 days. starting to get a gut ache and losing my appetite. then again i'm close to another remicade infusion(Oct. 3). but, the problem is i haven't had these problems before except the d.
hoping for the best but who knows.

My last bad flare started after the Remicade for me. But Remicade had been wearing off and since I just got out of the hospital, my doctor is going to up the dosage in October higher. I couldnt eat the pain was so bad. This started wearing off and flaring mildly in June and Imuran was increased to 175mg. It is hard to know with the GI tract because everything is so connected , what is what sometimes. I still dont have my appetite back which is probably a good thing for now. It is like I have to remind myself to eat again. Hope you fee better and dont flare too bad.
