Hi everybody 

First of all I want to say Thanks for taking your time to read this post. I wish to let you know a little bit about me, I was diagnosed with AS 3 years ago but the symptoms started when I was 15 yrs old, now I'm 23. I was more than 5 years without any treatment, for this reason the doctors have been really hard time getting control the AS. I have been on treatment with methotrexate, then enbrel, after that humira, and now Remicade. 5 days after the 1st session of Remicade I had to go to emergency for a strong headache. Neurologists at the hospital diagnosed me migraines caused by Remicade. They sent me to home but I had to look for a Neurologist urgent. I haven't could get one appointment urgent, the soonest I get is on April 12th. Now I'm very worried because I had the 2nd session on Wednesday and since that I have been feeling a strong migraine, fatigue, dizziness, and drowsiness. I would like to know if somebody else has felt the same symptoms with this medicine and if you get better after you get used to. I appreciate your answers.

Hi there -- sorry this post has gone unanswered so long! I don't have an answer for you, but you may want to try posting on the general message board (if you have not already) as many more people check that one.
