Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
I started using remicade 8 months ago, with great success, however recently have soreness in gums and teeth; especially on semi rigid foods pain is then severe.
Especially bad where two fixed bridges are located.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
After third infusion of Remicade I developed pneumonia requiring hospitalization. An 8 day stay with anti-biotic treatments. I developed oral candida albicans where lozenges (200) failed to cure. Just switched to liquid solution w/I last 2 days. Doctors report I have developed pulmonary fibrosis. We are just now addressing that symptom/result. I had one more infusion 6 weeks after entering the hospital, and had negative symptoms. Doctor advises to stop all Remicade treatments. O2 intake is now at 90%, where as last year it would normally be 95%+ w/o exertion.
From this study (3 weeks 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?
