You know, I'm wondering if the remicade can give some people gas. I had stomach gurgling a tiny bit but no actual gas till my first infusion. It was really bad for a few days and then slacked off to just irritating. Then again with the next infusion it got HORRIBLE for a few days. Now I spend all night in the bathroom with really bad gas (even with 2 extra strength simethicone pills a night). I didn't add anything but the remicade when it started. I'm really dreading my next infusion.
And then if I eat onions O...M...G. I almost die it's so bad. And I noticed it's worse the more I eat during the day (of anything).
I do seem to be ok during the day though. I can eat all day and then be in pain all night, so it's not messing with life too much thank goodness.
