When I ended up with antibodies to Remicade (serum sickness) the pain in my joints was intense but I also started to lose motor skills and would drop stuff.
After I stopped anti-tnf meds my pain gradually went away and my motor skills returned. I had no damage to my joints.
You could try getting an appointment with a Rheumatologist while your GI is away on holiday.
