Seizures with Cimzia

I had my first injections about 10days ago. This weekend, I ended up in the hospital after having 6 seizures. I have seizures, but these were different and I have never had more than 1 a day before.

The doctors are thinking it may be the Cimzia-has anyone else had experience with this? I would have thought the seizures would happen right after the injection, not a week later.
Hmm, I can't say I have heard of this but I know you can have a delayed hypersensitivity reaction. With Remicade I was told it could be up to 2 weeks later but it was very rare for it to be that long. I hope you get it figured out!
