Been on Remicade for almost 1 yr - It has been great
however, 2-3 months after my last infusion, I develped severe joint pain (with fatigue) that travelled from one part of my body to another on a daily basis. This last for 1 week and disappeared the morning before my next infusion - anyone with similar reaction?

My GI says anything that happens weeks, if not months, from the infusion is likely not related to the Remicade. I doubt your pains are Remi related since they occurred 2-3 months after an infusion. It may be another auto-immune-related thing, once you have one auto-immune problem like UC, others tend to rear their ugly heads.
