Having medicines intramuscularly might be a wee bit more painful than having it intravenously. If you have to have multiple doses in a day, or once everyday then it will be a bit uncomfortable.

I don't have Crohn's disease ... but all the best. If the intramuscular injections are once a month or once every three months then is is okay
