I was on Remicade 3 years ago and then stopped it. Last Tuesday I started it again, my 1st infusion. Today about 5 pm, my neck got really stiff, along with my back and right knee. Now, at 8pm, I can barely move my neck. My back stopped hurting, but now both knees hurt, with the same stiffness as my neck. I took some Tylenol, and put IcyHot on 1 of my knees to see what that did.
Is it possible to not get the side effects of Remicade until a week later, or is this totally unrelated?
