Audrey Says:


I was on humira injections to treat my complex perianal fistulating crohns disease. It was great until I came out of remission and had reaccurring flares of infection. Infliximab was the reccomended treatment to go on with. There was a period of 4 weeks between treatments and during that time I developed excruciating lower leg pain and can barely walk. They burn and throb even when I'm not walking. My head aches and I feel worse now than before I stopped the humira. I had my first infliximab infusion yesterday and feel like I.ve been run down by a bus. Can anyone out there relate to this?

Those can be side effects of Remicade, which contains Infliximab, and the warnings advise you to consult your doctor about it. Other issues may include bleeding, tiredness, bruising, fever, and headache, according to NIH reports.

At this point you might be experiencing rebound effects from stopping the Humira, as well as side effects from starting the Remicade.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?
