Just wondering if anyone has had any experiences they can share with remicade infusion therapy for treatment of rheumatoid arthritis? I recently was receiving therapy however I had to stop due to a severe case of mouth sores which was some sort of side effect?

I was hoping there would be more of us here! I'm so upset about Remicade. Haven't ya'll heard the news about it being a cause of a demyleinating disease, i.e., Multiple Sclerosis?? Imagine getting MS via IV Infusion at the age of 72. My mother did. Along with congestive heart failure and breathing difficulties.
Do some Googling. Oh man!!

My wife took 3 treatments of remicade infusion for crohn's disease... severe inflamatory disease of colon
First time worked for 8 wks, and no results on 2nd and 3rd trial.
My wife, of 33 yrs now, saw a nutritionist, who was specializing in herbs and natural remedies... probiotics, fish oil, vitamins et al.
She is virtually cured of her crohn's ... and a real trooper.
If you can see a reputable herbalist, nutritionist, with certification... will likely have to pay out of pocket unless they have other degrees... sometimes DCs are into the natural remedies.
Robin Helstrom in Geneva NY gets high marks from my perspective.
