I have been on Remicade for 3 years now.  It has been a miracale drug for me.  about 8 weeks ago, I started having ear fullness.  Then about 2 weeks later, I began a constant
ear ache that wouldn't quit.  I went to Shea Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee, and was diagnosed with Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS), which is the chicken pox/shingle viris basically in the ear.  It can cause facial paralysis, however I have been fortunate to not experience that.  I went to my GI for a checkup on Friday and he informed me that he has had 3 patients with RHS and 5 with shingles while on Remicade.  Has anyone experiences this?
