Remicade for Ulcerative Colitis
I have my next infusion Friday the 4th and it will be tougher, my Nurse, does not want me to drive, we shall see. I have about the same side effects that I had on Humira but stronger. The worst is flu like symptoms that I get about 2 -3 times a week. One can also get beet red which I get only on the bottom of my feet, terrible heart palpitations which I had once, took a Benadryl and they stopped in 10 minutes. Appetite normal but am very fatigued and legs get real weak. The good news is I think this is going to work! From my mouth to Gods ears! I miss you all and the other part of my story is about grieving and I will post that separately. I really took a hiatus more from that than from the Remicade. I want to thank each and every one of you who posted all the lovely notes to me. Thanks a bunch.
