I understand that you have been taking Remicade
treatments every 8 weeks.
Your current symptoms sound like you have a flare up of Crohn's. The reasons
may be that you have lost the effectiveness of the drug or you may need to take
the drug more frequently. Increasing the dose may be an option also. If this does
not work , you may ask your gastroenterologist about switching to other alternative
drugs such as Humira or Cimzia. Tysabri (Natalizumab
) may be another choice.
I am glad that you are off the Medrol which has long term side effects if taken
for a long time such as Cataracts
Increased brusing may be from steroids that you were on.
Hope you can talk to your doctor and take appropriate actions.
I wish you the very best.
