Since going on Remicade the bottoms of my feet have gone numb (about 2 months). My doctor does not know if this could be caused by the drug and I am concerned, my next treatment I am going from a dose of 300 to 500 and this could make my foot problem worse. Has anyone else experienced something like this, if so does it go away?

I've been on Remicade for a couple of years and the Dr. and I agreed to stop treatment to see if numbness would go didn't and it was too painful going without Remicade so I'll go from 300 to 400 with my next infusion. The numbness has crept up my legs. bummer! I also take Arava daily. The Dr. has added Lyrica to my treatment. It helps some with pain and sleep.

I had sharp stinging pains and numbness in my feet and it went away when I stopped taking Arava.
