Here is something different:
I have posterior scleritis of the eye. It is another autoimmune syndrome probably related to Crohns. This was diagnosed 2/07 when I was experiencing flashing lights, blurred vision, and lots of pain. It seems inflamation had (has) built up behind the retina, pushing it forward until it tore and detached. The treatment has been Prednisone....tons of Prednisone. I thought last summer it had slowed to the point that I could have the cataract (from Pred of course) removed, then have the scar tissue removed. No such luck. It flaired again and my eysight is even worse, now 20/300.
My research says that Remicade is effective against ocular inflamation in people who don't respond to steroids. My retina specialist argues that I DO respond. I just have to take a bunch....forever. Meanwhile, last week marked my second Remicade infusion to treat my Crohns (Wink Wink). I am praying that it works for the eye because I'm bummed out with all the Prednisone and being blind in that eye.
