Hi Sherrylang, welcome to our community. I was dx'd with CD at 54yo. Thankfully I am in remission. Personally, I did not go on Remicade but there have been several people her who have been on biologics who can help you better than me. I hope you feel better soon and have many pain free days.

Take good care,

Love Goes There,
