The restlessness and joint/muscle pain are most likely due to the prednisone taper. Once she's been completely off for a time, it should get better. Tylenol may help take the edge off it, I took the arthritis forumla every 8 hours. Just have her take it routinely for a bit, to see if it helps.
I hope the Remicade will kick in and begin working; if it's going to work you should see results by the sixth infusion if not before. Remember that even though active inflammation may be improving, the colon still has to heal, so she may see continued improvement over time.
