Watch the joint pain coming off the Predinose if your on Remicade. I tapered too fast and it was horrible!
Everyone is different though so hopefully you won't experience this. Prior to Remicade & my 1st resection I had terrible night sweats..mine was low grade fevers. They would start around 2pm in the afternoon. Never realizing I even had fever (just thought it was the after lunch slump). Of course the fever would break as soon as I was asleep good and I'd wake up with wet sheets, wet hair, wet pjs...how nasty! Then post op as I took higher doses of predinsone 60mg per day, I would get night sweats then too. Finally, I am currently on 12.5 mg of pred per day, can't find a aluminum free antiperspirant that will keep me dry and the bottom of my feet sweat! Again, nasty!
