Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have a constant burning, diarrhea, startling, nausea and vertigo that doesn't stop.
From this study (8 months ago):
I am on Remicade once a month since July 22nd of 2013. Had a great response until I hurt my low back again. Then the back pain just worked it's way right up my spine to the neck. I have had neck fusion one level...several bad discs. A knee replacement, a shoulder reconstruction etc. The numbness and tingling in my left hand and buzzing in my left ear are driving me nuts. A recent hearing exam showed I had nerve problems there as well. Don't know what to think. Had a brain MRI it showed normal. Now thinking a spinal tap in order?
From this study (2 years ago):
I used the Betamethasone with Atarax in October when I got contact dermatitis from chemicals. I only take the Vicodin, Lisinopril, and Xanax now. I stopped the other meds after I recoverd about 2 months ago.
