Hi--
Just accidently wiped out my msge--Oh well here goes again! rolleyes
 
I've been on a really successful remi treatment since last Nov.  But now I've noticed that 2 wks 
to 10 days just before my next scheduled infusion, I start having some joint pain--mostly wrists--
and even a little constipation. (Now that's a new one!)  Seems like I remember someone else
having the same problem a while back.  Then after the infusion, all's well again.
 
Anyone else notice the same thing? confused

Remicade gave me such severe joint pain that I had to stop taking it.  It can be one of the "lupus-like" symptoms that can be caused by Remi.
