So glad you took your first dose! I too, am relatively new to Remicade. I had my 3 loading doses in Nov. and Dec. 2010. I noticed a big difference for a few days after my first infusion, then not really any after my 2nd and 3rd. I have developed really high fever, 103 some nights, that just goes up during the late night, and early morning hours. I have had blood work, urinalysis, x-rays, and nothing shows up. They say I am very healthy, so I am assuming this is a delayed side effect of the Remicade. I have noticed a lessening of symptoms since the fever started (I have run it every night for almost 2 weeks) but I feel pretty rotten.
I am encouraged by what I read, that it takes some longer to see effects. I will keep on it for now, and hope for the best.
Has anyone else had this high, unexplainable fever?
Hope all have a wonderful day!
