yeah, that happened to me too. I wound up with strep pneumonia, bacteremia, drug induced hepatitis & jaundice. Was is ICU for a week. My GI thought that I had the pneumonia prior to the infusion & didn't know it yet, & the Remicade kicked the infection into ultra-high gear. But if your PCP hasn't found anything weird with your labs or chest x-ray, then I wouldn't worry too much. On the drug side-effect sheet they give me at the infusion, it states that flu-like symptoms, including fever, can be a side effect. A fair amount of time has passed since you're 2nd infusion, & if you're not getting sicker, then don't worry about
it. You should be getting better each day, especially if it's related to the infusion.
