Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 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 (3 months ago):

  • Joint and muscle pain and stiffness started one week before remicade treatment and was gone 8 hours after treatment. 4 weeks later pain and stiffness returned in one day all at once. 3 weeks until next treatment . Mornings are better after some stretching, by the end of the day I can barely walk. Also fatigue, I have trouble sleeping also from the pain.

  • This is my daughter - they think she has lupus. I just feel it has to be from the drugs. She is only 30. Thinking of having her colon removed.
