I haven't had negative reactions to Remi, but that is certainly possible with any medication we take. If the med is infused directly into our circulatory system, any such reaction will usually happen faster and stronger.
Sorry you're having an adverse reaction, and I hope it's reversed and you're back to normal soon.

The most common side effects of infliximab are upper respiratory tract infections, weakness and fever.
Side effects such as fever and chills may occur during or shortly after administration. These reactions could indicate an allergy to the drug. They are more common among patients who develop antibodies to infliximab
Serious infections have been reported with other drugs that block TNF- alpha, and infections have been reported during treatment with infliximab.
Before starting infliximab, persons are recommended to have tuberculosis skin testing (PPD tests for TB), because of reports of reactivation of tuberculosis in patients taking infliximab.
wishing you a speedy recovey

Make sure your doctor has checked your blood to see how your ANA levels are. If it's too high, it could be an indication of lupus.
I hope you have a speedy recovery!
