I have a question for all of you who use Remicade. I have had about
6 treatments of Remicade and about
a month ago my hands and feet started to feel numb (pins and needles).
My doctor said that some people who take Remicade could develop neurological symtoms for certain diseases, MS being one of them. I have since read up on this disturbing news and have found out that you don't necessarily have to be on Remicade, you just have to have an IBD disease to be more prone to these conditions. That is, if you have one chronic inflammatory disease, you're more likely than the general population to develop another.
Needless to say, I'm a wreck. I have an appointment next week with a neurologist, but was wondering if anyone has any knowledge or experience with this matter.
