    Muscle twitching/spasms

    I've had three infusions of Remicade and recently noticed twitching and muscle spasms mainly in my legs. It's not exclusively there though, I've noticed it in my arms and others spots as well.

    Opting for surgery while feeling well?

    I recently had another CT scan which showed even more thickening since the last time, and during my colonoscopy my doc was unable to get scope into my small bowel. However, I don't feel terribly sick. He and the surgeon both said they want to go on based how I feel. So my question is, has...

    Possible costochondritis?

    Okay, so before anyone asks, I've had both an echocardiogram and a nuclear stress test done in the last two months. Both came back fine. I had them because I had a massive panic attack and with my family history I got a full workup. Anyway... Fast forward to a few weeks ago and I started...

    Hopefully I can get a dx

    After two months of more or less continual symptoms I finally got into see gastro doctor. He seemed pretty nice and sympathetic, and was more than willing to answer questions, etc. Overall I liked him. He set me up for colonoscopy and endoscopy this coming Friday. I'm slightly nervous but I will...

    Still reeling from diagnosis but feel optimistic.

    Hello everyone. I recently had two trips to the ER. The first was because I had what I believe to be a panic attack, odd tingling in fingers and heart racing etc. Everything checked out heart wise and I'm still keeping tabs on it just because of family history. However, shortly after being...
