Upper body ache in arms, shoulders after sunburn
From this study (7 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 (11 months ago):
I recently had a bleed and received a blood transfusion of two units. I am also receiving weekly Iron treatments due to Anemia.
I am suffering from swollen legs and sometimes hands.
I am having muscle pain that is sore to the touch on my right side in my neck and and calf. The bottom of right foot feels like it has some sort of issue with the bones at times it is very difficult to walk on so I resort to walking on my toes which still causes discomfort but not as bad.
