In another post you asked how long Remicade remained in the body. It does not last much over 6-8 weeks. BUT, if you have built antibodies to Remicade or have serum sickness from reacting to the protein, then you could still be ill. Also, many of your symptoms are similar to those that come from Remicade induced lupus. Have your doctor test ANA, anti-dsDNA antibodies, CRP, sed rate, C3 complement and do a HACA through Prometheus labs. The HACA is the only test to determine if you have developed antibodies to the murine protein in Remicade. Not all insurance companies pay for it.
