I went in for another infusion yesterday. After my last infusion, I started getting bad joint pains and my GI said I might be developing antibodies against Remicade but to give it one last try. So I reluctantly went yesterday for my 700 mg infusion. I had some itching but it went away. Then around 4 pm, I had calf pain. I managed to stay at the kid's Christmas party. I sat down to try to ease the pains but they wouldn't stop. When we finally got home, I took 2 tylenol pms and went to bed. I did not sleep at all. The pains got so bad, I wanted to scream. I felt like someone was electricuting my legs. I took 1/2 darvocet and no relief. No position would ease it. I called my GI that morning, they said prob a reaction to the Remi but I should come in for him to check for thrombosis. By the afternoon, the pains had lessend but I still had them. GI said they seemed to be in the muscle from where I pointed to. Now I can never get Remicade again. I am going to try Humira.
