I just wanted to post and say that I had a "lupus-like" reaction to remicade, a drug I was taking for ulcerative colitis and it was absolutley debilitating for months. I am finally feeling so much better and am thankful to not be living in that constant pain anymore.
I had gone to so many doctors who didnt believe me and made me think it was all in my head, im sure a frustration alot of you deal with. Please know that I have felt the pain and it is NOT a good feeling.
Goodluck to you all and take care!
