From this study (2 months ago):
From this study (8 months ago):
I am on Remicade once a month since July 22nd of 2013. Had a great response until I hurt my low back again. Then the back pain just worked it's way right up my spine to the neck. I have had neck fusion one level...several bad discs. A knee replacement, a shoulder reconstruction etc. The numbness and tingling in my left hand and buzzing in my left ear are driving me nuts. A recent hearing exam showed I had nerve problems there as well. Don't know what to think. Had a brain MRI it showed normal. Now thinking a spinal tap in order?
Was given Demerol and Phenergan IM and Kenalog last night at the doctors office and that helped tremendously, but only until those medications wore off and then I had to start taking what I was prescribed. Lortab 10/650 and Phenergan 25mg. The doctor also increased my Topamax from 100mg a day to 200mg a day. That kept them away last time, so hopefully it will this time as well. I think I may of gotten 1 in a year, where I was getting them twice a week. They help, but basically I will have to tough it out a couple more days.
