The Dr said NOPE. I don't want to take a chance of your body going through anymore side effects to your Nervous system. So *crossing Fingers* we hope that meds I take which will keep any flare ups away. Though steroids that I was given in the hospital for 10 days didn't do anything at all. But i'm back on them now. If this doesn't work I will have to have surgery. thats when I was given my 1st Remicade. Worked WONDERS!!!! then it was all down hill from there.
The 2nd treatment of Remicade (sept 1st 2009) totally attacked my nervous system. From the tips pf my toes to the top of my head. By the time I pieced everything together, I had, gone ahead with the 3rd treament of Remicade. The attack of my nervous system equals ***** numbness, tingling feelings, loss of motor function in my hands and fingers. A dropped right ankle, messed up my total knee replacement (March 2009), messed up my rotator cuff and bicep muscle surgeries (June 2009) The pain so bad in my fingers, palms and right foot, that even 30mgs of Oxycodone 2 X's a day doesn't even take away more then 50% of the pain. ****I do not have control over my right ankle. Its like there is no support. As in tendons etc holding it together. my ankle constantly gets twisted.

I hope you get alot better soon.
I will find a way or make one. –Phillip Sidney 1554-1586
