My next remicade infusion is in a week and my joints are screaming!  It's mostly my hands, elbows, knees and feet.  Anyone with any brilliant ideas on how to ease the pain so I don't walk around looking like I'm a 90 year old woman?
 
Cheers!

I have been taking the Cimzia shots and my joints in my hands hurt...Actually only two of my fingers hurt really bad at times...Not sure if it's caused from the Cimzia or not but today i called my dr to see if he would give me anything for the pain and he told me to take Tylenol Arthritis....It did help..Maybe it would help you also..

Hi,  One drug that helps me is nortriptiline(not sure of spelling).  It is an antidepressant but it works to block pain.  It doesn't take it away totally but makes it just a little more bearable.

 

Hugs,
