Hi, went for my third infusion today, things are going ok, i'm having some pain at the minute and mucus, i had a really bad time last night, i opened my bowels then it went it to spasm, it was so painful i could barely walk back to the bedroom, mind you an hour and two tramadol later i was back up going about my buisness and feeding the cats before bed. it crippled me at the time, it's only happened a few times but each time it happens it gets worse, what could be causing this? Anyway i went to the hospital as i was saying and my nurse told me about another drug called HUMIRA it works in a similar way to remicade only it is injected every other week and the bonus is you can do it yourself without hours wasting away in hospital. has anyone heard of this, does anyone use it, is it any good, is it easy to get from docs? cheers Miriam x
