Hi Laurie -
After my 1st infusion I had bad joint pain - and from my understanding sometimes the side effects don't appear until after 3-12 days, so hang in there.
I have my 3rd infusion on Thursday but I have been feeling so much better over the past few weeks than I have in the last year, so it has been working for me. Like teddybear - I am LOVING remicade!!!
So there is hope, so don't freak out - also there are a few "newbies" to remicade so you have plenty of support.
Hope the pain passes soon!
