  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • Acne isn't severe in that it is vast, but what I do get is large spots that resemble whiteheads, but deep beneath the surface. They stick around for months without ever changing or coming to a head. Sometimes they itch.

    My idea of severe weight gain: 25lbs in 6 weeks.

    If they are painful and around the jaw/neck, they may be swollen lymph nodes.

    I have also noticed that I have been getting hard pimple like bumps on my face and neck. They never come to a head can be painful to touch and they get big like a boil but they don't go completely away they shrink down to where you can't notice the huge bump but when I rub my fingers over the area you can still feel a little bump under the skin almost like a cyst! What exactly are they and how can I stop getting them?

  • I started remicade infusions on 9/30/14, the next day my wrist began to hurt; the following day the pain became unbearable. I have never had any problems with carpal tunnel in the past. Is this caused by the remicade infusion.
