Just had my 3rd infusion of remicade. Seems like it's helping quite a bit. Am also on Lialda.
Last week had two mild nosebleeds and yesterday a really heavy nosebleed. I haven't had nosebleeds since I got off asacol last spring, but tho't that was caused by the combo of asacal and zoloft. Then got this current flare and went on lialda and then 6 weeks ago the remicade. My gut is better, but now the dang nosebleeds again!
Anybody else have similar problems? When I googled remicade I did find a mention of possible unusual bruising or bleeds on 3 different sites. Just when I tho't I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. Some days you just can't win--and it's a miserable dark, foggy day, and I'm feeling like a real pity party!
