OWWWWWWWWWW MY LEGS are KILLING ME!  I didn't sleep at all last night.  I got Remicade yesterday at 9am.  By 6pm the leg pains started.  I thought that if I took tylenol pm and slept it would go away, it is worse.  I also started taking Cymbalta 3 days ago, but didn't notice any pain till after Remicade.  I also developed severe joint pain this past month.  I have been taking 700 mgs of Remicade since August.

I started taking Cymbalta last July. I noticed almost within 24 hours that my joint pains were almost completely gone. Cymbalta has something in it to help with chronic pain. Even was able to start working out on an elliptical which I had never been able to do before because of knee and ankle pain.
