When you saw the dr, what was his reason to rx prednisone? What milligram did he start you on & for how long?
IBDers have a slight potential to develop a second AI disease. I know many people with crohns & UC that has never developed a 2nd AI. I have read many medical articles but never have heard of someone having arthritis turn into RA. Regular arthritis is the most common one to affect millions & millions of people.
Another thought is have your gi checked your antibodies levels of Remicade? If not, ask him to do the test.
I don't know when you are to see the dr again, however, since you are concerned about RA why not ask him to run the appropriate tests & to see what turns up. That's better than doing the what if thing, that is too stressful.
