Please tell me your Remicade experiences

I have been taking Remicade for over a year. Infusions go very smoothly with no side effects. I generally get a two hour nap at each infusion. I have gone from 60MG of prednisone and barely skirting a flare up to full remission with Remicade infusions only. (7 vials every six weeks)

However.... I am starting to see a trend of muscle/joint pain and cramps about two weeks after an infusion. My last infusion seemed to trigger a fairly severe bout of this.

Has anyone else had similar reactions and if so, what was the ultimate outcome.did your Dr. give you Other drugs to combat symptoms, end infusions etc. and if so did the symtoms cease???
